Each year, together, we are given the opportunity to continue God’s mission through the Annual Catholic Appeal. This year’s ACA theme, “One Family…Walking Together in Faith,” reminds us of the journey of faith we make together as one community in Northern and Western Missouri. The Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) enables us to fund the ministries, services, and programs that are vital for the mission and work of our 88 Parishes and 10 Missions that no one parish or person could support alone.

The 2021 Annual Catholic Appeal helps fund more than 30 ministries along with administrative support for both parishes and the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph. Each dollar that you contribute assists in the ministries below:

Catholic Charities * Parish-Based Ministries * Hispanic Ministry

Catholic Schools Office * Bright Futures Fund * Office of Discipleship and Faith Formation

Vocation Office * Seminarian Education * Office of Consecrated Life * Diaconate Program * Divine Worship Office * Priestly Life and Ministry * Marriage and Family Life * Young Adult Ministry * Campus Ministry * Office of Youth Ministry * Human Rights Office * Respect Life Office * Administrative Services for All Employees


You can help meet this year’s 2021 ACA diocesan goal of $1,800,000 by considering making a gift or a pledge to the 2021 Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA). Your gift or pledge will help fund a number of services, programs, and ministries that make our church effective in its mission as well as those among us who are vulnerable or in need-families, children, youth, and adults. Together with your generosity, we can make a difference for our Diocese.
