Bishops’ Appeal calendar

Bishops’ Appeal calendar

The 2019 Bishops’ Appeal Calendar commemorated the Disestablishment of the Church of Ireland – the 150th anniversary of which is this year – and each month provided a reflection from its bishops on issues or projects that have been supported by Bishops’ Appeal over the years.  Members of the Church of Ireland supported communities all over the world by purchasing a Bishops’ Appeal calendar. 

The Rt Revd Patrick Rooke, Chair of the Bishops’ Appeal Advisory Committee, said: ‘2019 marks the 150th anniversary of the Disestablishment of the Church of Ireland. Throughout those 150 years, this Church has worked to support the disadvantaged in some of the poorest parts of the world. The calendar is both a celebration of that partnership but also a reminder of how life is for so many. Those who purchase a calendar will be supporting this ongoing work as we seek to bring relief to disaster situations as well as supporting health, education and rural development projects.’
