2023 Annual Catholic Appeal
The 2023 Diocese Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) has begun. This campaign is guided by the theme taken from Romans 12:12, “Joyful in Hope.” This verse aptly captures where we stand at this time in our diocesan story as we embrace our duties as disciples of Jesus. The annual ACA campaign is essential funding that impacts every parishioner and parish in the 27 counties that make up the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph.
Your gift will help in this continued work and prepare us for our future. God has given us many blessings. Let us join together as one family and walk together in faith through acts of love as disciples of Our Lord.
