Archbishop’s Charities and Development Drive (ABCD)

Hope has a name. Jesus...

Hope has a name: Jesus. To put our faith in Jesus means we must put it into action through charity. Our archdiocesan programs and ministries effect change, share the love of Christ, and bring hope to people in need. In the words of Pope Benedict, “A world without God is a world without hope. A world without God is a world without a future.”

Once a year, we commit ourselves to the ongoing work of the Archdiocese of Miami by supporting the ABCD. Next week, every parish in the Archdiocese will unite to ask our Catholic community to support this year’s annual appeal by making a gift.

Please consider making a donation, whether by responding to the Archbishop’s letter, making a gift online at www.isupportabcd.org or turning in your pledge envelope at the Church.

Individually, we can change our own life, but together, we can change the world. United, let us be One in Faith, One in Hope and One in Charity.

Life is God’s gift to us, and what we do with it is our gift to God.

2019 ABCD Prayer!

God of Love and Mercy, you are the giver of all gifts.
Help us to be witnesses to faith, hope and charity by serving our brothers and sisters in need.
Give us strength to be unconditionally followers of your Son, Jesus Christ, in work and in deed.
When He saw the hungry; He fed them.
When He saw the thirsty; He gave them drink.
When He saw the hungry; He fed them.
When He saw the sick; He healed them.
When He saw the downtrodden; He gave them hope.
May we always serve you with humility and generosity, and may the ABCD be an opportunity for us to live always in your Spirit.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
