Annual Catholic Appeal

Bishop Johnston’s 2024 Annual Catholic Appeal message

En Español

The Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, comprised of 83 parishes and 10 missions throughout 27 counties in North and West Missouri, has been blessed through the generosity of so many people such as you. With our 2024 Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) theme, “Giving in Love,” I am inviting you to be part of serving God with the gifts you have been given to equip others spiritually, socially, and educationally through the parish and diocesan ministries funded by the Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA).

As you may know, gifts to the Annual Catholic Appeal serve as the primary means to fund the more than 30 ministries, directed through the Diocesan Chancery Offices, that assist our parishes and Catholics throughout the diocese. While our financial goal of $2,000,000 is very important, it is just as essential for each of us to grow in faith and to accompany others into a life of faith and life in Jesus. Put simply, the ACA strengthens your parish and every parish. We need each other to do “the work of the ministry.” God has given us many blessings. Let us join together as one family through acts of love as disciples of Our Lord.

Each dollar that you contribute assists in the ministries below:

Catholic Charities
Parish Based Ministry Grants
Hispanic Ministry

Catholic School Office
Bright Futures Fund
Office of Catechesis and Faith Formation

Vocation Office
Seminarian Education
Office of Consecrated Life
