The world changes and generations pass but God's wisdom is enduring, and His will guides us throughout the ages. And in His wisdom, his grace is boundless. Though we so often fall short of His will, He understands and forgives. He gave His son to the world knowing they would abandon Jesus to Pilate to be crucified. But this sacrifice was the ultimate act of forgiveness, demonstrating there is no end to His love and mercy.
God rewards us for trusting His guidance, both in His heavenly kingdom and in seeing the impact we can have on those on earth who need it most. When our brothers and sisters suffer or are in need, God's will to serve as stewards of His many gifts. And through the Annual Catholic Appeal, we of ourselves serve the ministries that do such vital work in His name.
With the help of your generous support of the Appeal, we can come together as one Church and proclaim with one voice, Thy Will Be Done.
The weekend of April 17-18 marked the beginning of the 2021 Annual Catholic Appeal for the Archdiocese of St. Louis. The goal for this year's campaign is $14.5 million. In connection with the Campaign SGM has mailed out pledge cards to parishioners. Pledge cards will not be available on tables in the Narthex this year due to Covid-19 protocol.
