2023 Annual Catholic Appeal
Walking on the Road with Jesus
Many parishioners have already received the mailing from Cardinal Cupich inviting them to contribute to this year’s Annual Catholic Appeal. The Appeal funds the work of the Church in the Archdiocese of Chicago in its holy mission to teach, to serve and to sanctify, thus carrying out the work of Christ. When you support the Appeal, you are united to a faith community that demonstrates the love of neighbor through the good works we are all able to collectively provide.
This year’s theme is WALKING ON THE ROAD WITH JESUS. Ultimately, this is what building a new reality is all about for our newly united parishes and our larger Oak Park efforts, to share our faith stories and walk on the road with Jesus, inviting others on that journey with us. As parishes of the Archdiocese of Chicago, our main goal is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ and carry on his mission through our faith communities, schools and ministries. The Appeal’s funds, as you may have read in the literature sent in the mail, support low-income parishes and schools, religious education and outreach programs, development for priests, Catholic Relief Services and more.
On behalf of those served by the ministries, parishes and schools that receive funding from the Appeal, we thank you for your consideration and support this year and in past years.
On February 11-12, we listened to a recorded message from Cardinal Cupich on this vital annual need. Thank you to all who have responded and offered their support by mailing in their gift or pledge.
The Appeal will continue for the remainder of February. There is a table in the gathering space of both Church sites with brochures, offering envelopes and a drop box for your completed donation.
You may also offer your gift or pledge online by following the link below. Please remember to add our Parish name on your offering form so that we get credit.
Thank you for joining our faith community that demonstrates the love of neighbor through the good works we are all able to collectively provide as we Walk on the Road with Jesus!
