When we pray the creed at Mass – our profession of faith – we offer our yes to all that God has done and all that He has given to us. Saying I Believe is a personal proclamation and a bold promise to share our blessings with others.
Saying I Believe is not always easy. At times it is extremely difficult. In recent times the bond of trust with the Church and its leaders has been severely broken. Many have been hurt and the faith of some has been shaken.
Your continued prayers and support of the Annual Catholic Appeal is a choice to participate in restoring trust and giving new life to God’s plan. I invite you to share your gifts joyfully, to say I Believe confidently!
Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson
Archbishop of St. Louis
