2021 Annual Catholic Appeal: Come, follow me … and bring hope to the world
Many families in our parish will be receiving the Annual Catholic Appeal mailing from Cardinal Cupich. On behalf of those served by the ministries, parishes and schools who receive funding from the Appeal, we thank you for your gifts. Please return your response as soon as possible. The Annual Catholic Appeal offers a wonderful opportunity to answer Jesus’ call to “Come, follow me ... and bring hope to the world.” This is especially important during these trying and challenging times. Many in our parishes are affected financially by the pandemic, and we encourage giving at all levels to support this initiative. In addition to providing for ministries and services throughout the archdiocese, the Annual Catholic Appeal funds services in our own parish. For example, Appeal funds support Lector and Eucharistic Minister training. The appeal funds raised in our parish will also go to support our Youth and Young Adults’ programs. When we financially support the work of our parish, our archdiocese and the Catholic Church throughout the world, we experience a feeling of deep gratitude, especially when we contemplate God’s many gifts to us personally. By sharing our wealth through gifts to the 2021 Annual Catholic Appeal, we demonstrate our commitment to the Church and each other. More information...
MARRIAGE and FAMILY MINISTRY
The Marriage and Family Ministry Team aims to encourage families and couples across the Archdiocese of Chicago to live a life in Jesus Christ together, to strengthen their faith and relationship. The Marriage and Family Ministry Team works in coordination with other members of the Office of Lifelong Formation to engage with parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Chicago to serve families, including but not limited to, those seeking marriage enrichment and engaged couples preparing for the Sacrament of Marriage.
In the apostolic exhortation, “The Joy of Love”, Pope Francis writes, “Marital joy can be experienced even amid sorrow; it involves accepting that marriage is an inevitable mixture of enjoyment and struggles, tensions and repose, pain and relief, satisfactions and longings, annoyances and pleasures, but always on the path of friendship, which inspires married couples to care for one another: ‘they help and serve each other.’”
Just as Pope Francis encourages married couples to cultivate the joy of love, the Office of Lifelong Formation supports married couples on their path to holiness through resources and programs. More information...
