Annual Catholic Appeal

(Ver en Español)

Each year, together, we are given the opportunity to continue God’s mission through the Annual Catholic Appeal. This year’s ACA theme, “One Family…Walking Together in Faith,” reminds us of the journey of faith we make together as one community in Northern and Western Missouri. The Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) enables us to fund the ministries, services, and programs that are vital for the mission and work of our 88 Parishes and 10 Missions that no one parish or person could support alone.

The 2021 Annual Catholic Appeal helps fund more than 30 ministries along with administrative support for both parishes and the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph. Each dollar that you contribute assists in the ministries below:


SOCIAL SERVICE/OUTREACH MINISTRIES
Catholic Charities
Parish Based Ministry Grants
Hispanic Ministry


EDUCATION/FAITH FORMATION MINISTRIES
Catholic School Office
Bright Futures Fund
Office of Catechesis and Faith Formation
