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. One church, one 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 join us by making a gift now. You can obtain a pledge envelope from the parish office or you can make a gift online at www.isupportabcd.org. Thank you for all that you do and the spirit in which you do it.
