A Message from the Archbishop

The Annual Catholic Appeal unifies us as Catholics in the Archdiocese of St. Louis. Each year we demonstrate we are one Church in our efforts to assist those who are suffering and abandoned. Catechetical programs introduce our young children to the love and peace of the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ. Our newly ordained priests join their new parishes with enthusiasm and great hope. Your gift means thousands will find grace and mercy through the Annual Catholic Appeal, not because those we serve are Catholic, but because we are Catholic. Please consider a gift today.

I am praying for you and your loved ones.

Sincerely yours in Christ,



Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson
Archbishop of St. Louis

Because We Are Catholic

The Annual Catholic Appeal sustains ministries and services throughout St. Louis and ten surrounding counties. Our reach is extensive, our Catholic devotion is deep and our readiness to live the Gospel is intense. Your prayerful support will play a central role in impacting the lives of those served. We invite you to learn more about the vibrant ministries and services of the Archdiocese of St. Louis and see how you can help.

Helping Others

Why do we seek out the homeless, feed the hungry, serve families and protect the unborn? Why do we provide clinics, counseling and food pantries? Why do we give tuition help and teacher training for schools? Some of those we serve are Catholic; many are not. But we do it because we are Catholic. The Annual Catholic Appeal sustains ministries and services that help countless people in situations of need and suffering.

Discover the Joy

God’s goodness and abundant blessings are many. Each of us has the ability to share our blessings, to help others and to make a difference. The Annual Catholic Appeal is about how the Catholic community reaches out every day with charity, peace and justice.

Serving Those in Need

Your gift to the Annual Catholic Appeal makes an impact in so many ways, reaching thousands and giving witness to why we are Catholic. Ministries and individuals who are helped include the following:



“The joy of the Gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus. Those who accept his offer of salvation are set free from sin, sorrow, inner emptiness and loneliness. With Christ, joy is constantly born anew.” 

– Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel, 1

Why We Give

When we pray together, work together or simply
get together, Jesus promises He is there in our midst.
A Catholic parish is a place to do that. It is a place to belong,
to be united in prayer and sacraments. It is also a place for mutual sharing and giving. When you participate, the life of the Church expands, and the great joy of giving is made present among us. The Annual Catholic Appeal is
an important way to say . . . we are Catholic.

Prayer Request

Submit your prayer request below, and your intention will be remembered at Mass in the St. Vincent de Paul Chapel at the Cardinal Rigali Center. God bless you!
