Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA)

“Blessing God’s Family: Past…Present…Future…”

Your gift to the Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) makes a difference right here at St. Charles Borromeo Parish.  There are some who ask why they should give to the ACA when they already support our parish and see the many wonderful things going on here at St. Charles.  You may not realize that many of these wonderful things result, in part, from Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) supported agencies that coordinate, train and provide services to us.  Faith Formation classes, Youth Ministry, the Permanent Diaconate, Family Life…all these have an impact on our parish.

Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) ministries also reach beyond the boundaries of St. Charles Borromeo Parish.  Many Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) ministries provide services that are well beyond the scope of any single parish.  In combining resources, they are able to minister to the diverse ethnic populations in the diocese, provide much needed spiritual support on our college campuses, and assist with services for seniors, low income families and individuals. 

Your Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) contributions will help make the education of our 21 seminarians possible.  We are blessed with the presence of these dedicated young men who will one-day serve the people of our diocese as priests.

Please make a pledge to the Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA).  As good stewards, we have a responsibility to look beyond our own parish needs to the larger church.  Your gift to the Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) might just change the life of someone who desperately needs your help.
