Jesus Keeps Knocking on our Doors...

Click here to view video >>

The Archdiocese of Miami, through the Archbishop’s Charities and Development Drive (ABCD), opens the door for us all to unite as one community of believers to evangelize and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ bringing hope to those in need.

We ask you to love your neighbors, selflessly and sacrificially, by making a gift to the ABCD so that we can unite to feed the hungry, cloth the poor, care for the sick and dying, and touch the hearts of those in despair. Your generosity will also help us educate our children, assist the poorest of our parishes and schools, and provide shelter for the homeless. Together, we will continue to defend the dignity of all human life, eliminate prejudice, and promote social justice.

Jesus is knocking on your door and inviting you to love and serve those in need through the ABCD. Please make a gift- a gift blessed with sacrifice-so that we can continue to love others as He has loved us.
