Annual Capital Appeal – Kwesta Katolicka – 2024

  • Announcement Weekend             February 3-4, 2024
  • Commitment Weekend                 February 10-11, 2024
  • Follow Up Weekend                     February 17-18, 2024

The Annual Catholic Appeal will launch next weekend. This year’s theme for the Annual Catholic Appeal is Together at the table. It evokes the Last Supper and the story of the two disciples on their way to Emmaus, who are together at the table with the Lord. When we are together at the table, the altar of the Lord’s sacrifice, we find the actual means that sustain us on our shared journey homeward.

The Appeal drives our archdiocese’s holy mission to teach, serve, and sanctify, allowing us to carry out the work of Christ. The work supported by the Appeal is more crucial than ever. Gifts to the Annual Catholic Appeal directly support the necessary work of parishes, Catholic schools, and vital ministries throughout the archdiocese, including Fr. Joe’s ministry to the Deaf, benefits from the Appeal.

Our goal this year is $47,346. Once we reach that goal, the parish receives a rebate check for anything above the goal. If we go over the goal, we can change the sign on Forest Preserve. Last year, we were not able to reach the goal. As your pastor, I want to thank all who have given to this campaign in past years. The funds you gave are deeply appreciated by the parishes, schools, and people served by the archdiocese.

If you receive your pledge form in the mail, please complete it and mail it back or bring it to the church next weekend. This year, we encourage our parishioners to make Annual Catholic Appeal gifts online at annualcatholicappeal.com. Today, you can take home envelopes, prayerfully make a plague, and bring it back to the church next weekend.
