ABCD: Give and You Shall Receive
Our church is a place to pray, to give thanks, to mourn and to celebrate. A place for us all to unite—in need and abundance—to have mercy, lift each other up and ease pain and suffering. A place people turn to in their time of need. We are all instruments of God's mercy and peace. Our church, our family uniting to help those in need.
Thank you to all who have already generously responded to this year's ABCD. Your support strengthens the ministries that serve our Archdiocese and allow the Church to form new disciples. As Scriptures remind us, Give and it shall be given to you. Your neighbor needs you. You are the answer to someone's prayers, and together, we are changing lives.
If you have yet to respond to this year's ABCD, please take a moment to reflect upon the many blessings the Lord has given you and how He is calling you to respond this incredibly important annual campaign. To make a gift, you can obtain a pledge envelope from the parish office or you can make a gift online at www.isupportabcd.org. Let us all unite through our support of this year's ABCD so that we can be One in Faith, One in Hope and One in Charity. Thank you
