A Message from the Archbishop

Each year the Annual Catholic Appeal unites us as Catholics in the Archdiocese of St. Louis. Together we demonstrate that we are one in service to those who are suffering, in need and abandoned. This year we are experiencing an extraordinary situation of uncertainty and suffering due to the worldwide pandemic. We confidently implore Our Lady, Health of the Sick, to heal those who are suffering and deliver us from this evil.

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

During this time of uncertainty and suffering due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Annual Catholic Appeal continues to sustain ministries and services throughout St. Louis and ten surrounding counties. Our reach is extensive, our Catholic devotion runs deep, and our readiness to live the Gospel is strong. 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.

A Message of Hope from Archbishop Carlson

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. We do it because we are Catholic. As Catholics, God has given us this opportunity to come together and show His strength. Together we bring a message of hope, courage and faith. Do not be afraid!

Discover the Joy

God’s goodness and  blessings are abundant. 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:



“Remain at peace. The Church will walk with you. Christ is with us in each other. We will never be alone. I invite you to increase your prayers for those suffering, their loved ones and caregivers. Pray for the doctors, nurses and medical staff on the front lines.”

– Archbishop Robert J. Carlson
