2011 Catholic Services Appeal - Progress Report

Thanks to those who have already responded with a gift to this annual appeal. To date we have raised $375 towards our parish goal of $3,750.00. There is still plenty of time to respond with a gift to this year’s Appeal. Gifts can be made through our parish office or online at, and please remember that no gift is too small.

"It is not enough to discover Christ, you must bring him to others."  -Blessed John Paul II

Letter from Archbishop Joseph Kurtz

My Dear Friends in Christ:

May God bless you!

Blessed John Paul II once said, “It is not enough to discover Christ, you must bring him to others.” As I reflect on the late pontiff’s call to action, I think of the more than one hundred ways that our Archdiocese seeks to bring Christ to others. Every day, archdiocesan ministries and services bring Christ to others by providing for the spiritual and human needs of people living throughout our area. The Catholic Services Appeal plays a vital role in making this happen.

As one of three principal sources of funding for the work of the Archdiocese, Catholic Services Appeal gifts help us to care for the poor, offer vocation programs and retreats, serve our ethnically diverse population, provide professional services to parishes and schools, and support adult faith formation efforts such as the Why Catholic? process.

Our goal for the 2011 Catholic Services Appeal is $2,500,000. I invite you to join us in the work of bringing Christ to others by making a gift or pledge to the 2011 Catholic Services Appeal. Your support will mean so much to those served by our archdiocesan agencies and offices.

I encourage you to respond with a gift or pledge to this year’s Catholic Services Appeal by clicking on the “Donate Online” button located on the menu to the right or you can explore other ways to give by clicking on the next button.

With your generous help, we can continue the work of bringing Christ to others.

Prayerfully asking God’s blessing for you and your loved ones, I am
Sincerely yours in our Lord,

Most Reverend Joseph E. Kurtz, D.D.
Archbishop of Louisville
