How can I help?

Here is how you can help meet this year’s diocesan goal of $1,900,000. Each year we come together and are given the opportunity through the Annual Catholic Appeal to support the healing, sanctifying and teaching presence of Jesus Christ in the many ministries and programs of the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph. The Annual Catholic Appeal allows the church to fund ministries and meet the needs that can only be accomplished together. Your gift strengthens all 88 parishes and 10 missions in 27 counties throughout Northern and Western Missouri.
