The 2023 Annual Catholic Appeal for the Diocese of San Diego is now underway. It is about many things, but it is mostly about you, your way of life, and putting God first in all things.
“This does not mean that to give relief to others you ought to make things difficult for yourselves; it is a question of balancing what happens to be your surplus now against their present need, and one day they may have something to spare that will supply your own need. That is how we strike a balance: as Scripture says, “The person who gathered much had too much, the person who gathered little did not go short.” 2 Corinthians 8:12-15 (New Jerusalem Bible)
As good stewards, we need to consider where this appeal fits into our life of discipleship. As baptized Catholics, we are called to share. This is just one facet of our stewardship way of life.
All amounts received by the parish above our goal will be returned to us for our own needs.
A Prayer that WE may REACH IN and support this year’s Annual Catholic Appeal
we thank you for calling us together.
In you we are one.
Help us to remember that united,
we are called to serve and love one another
through the generous sharing of our time,
gifts and resources.
Please bless our efforts and help us
to grow as a united and vibrant
community of faith.
Give us the grace to generously support
the Annual Catholic Appeal
so that we may faithfully
do the work of your Church.
