2021 Annual Catholic Appeal

Disciples of Christ, Witnesses of Hope

“No one has ever seen God. Yet, if we love one another, God remains in us, and His love is brought to perfection in us.” 1 John 4:14.

You can contribute to the Appeal by using the pledge card and return envelope mailed to your home, by accessing the Appeal website at www.cdow.org/annualcatholicappeal and clicking “How to Donate” or by completing a pledge card located at the exit doors of the church.

To learn more about the Annual Catholic Appeal visit the diocesan website at www.cdow.org/annualcatholicappeal.

In today’s Gospel Jesus tells us, “I am the good shepherd, and I know mine and mine know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the father; and I will lay down my life for the sheep.”

Everyone is welcomed to the flock by Jesus.
We too, must act faithfully to reach out to all individuals, especially those who feel neglected or abandoned. As Jesus committed His life to being the “one shepherd”, we too must commit ourselves as Catholics, to providing service to all.

There are several diocesan ministries and programs that offer help for those who feel estranged and marginalized by society. As baptized Christians, it is our shared responsibility to respond to Jesus’ command to love and serve one another.


The Annual Catholic Appeal provides financial support for a wide range of spiritual, pastoral, and educational services that assist not only the poor and suffering, but anyone who seeks assistance regardless of age, race or social class. Many thanks to those who have responded to the 2021 Annual Catholic Appeal your generosity is deeply appreciated.
