Each year we are invited to participate in the Archbishop’s annual Catholic Services Appeal, which is an opportunity for each of us to support our brothers and sisters in Christ. Your prayers and generous support of the Appeal are continuing to make a difference in the Archdiocese of Louisville and right here in our parish.
Did you know that funds raised through the Catholic Services Appeal benefit our community directly? The Appeal supports Youth & Young Adults and Faith Formation programs, which bring faith and comfort to our families and bring us closer to Christ. The CSA provides support to our Seminarians, as they prepare to make a lifetime of service to God and to the future of our Church.
Whether responding to human needs, promoting vocations, providing ministry training, evangelizing, or assisting parishes, archdiocesan ministries and services reach beyond the ability of our parish or any other parish to do this work alone. It is the work that Christ has entrusted to His Church. It is work that we are called to support through our baptism. Through our gifts to the annual Catholic Services Appeal, we are partnering in the work Christ has given to the Church.
Our parish monetary goal for the 2023 Catholic Services Appeal is $62,500.00. Our participation goal is 247 households. You will soon receive a letter from Archbishop Shelton inviting you to make a gift to this year’s Appeal. You may also click the button below to contribute. I will be making a personal gift, and I hope you will join me with a generous gift of your own. It is only through our generosity that these vital programs and ministries funded by the CSA can continue their good work.
On behalf of those served through your generosity, I thank you and pray that God will continue to bless you and your loved ones. Please remember those with needs in your prayers as well.
In gratitude for all that you do for St. Aloysius,
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Fr. John Stoltz
