A Message from Archbishop Carlson

Stories reveal who we are. They bind us together and preserve our memories. Stories teach important lessons about life and faith. Every story - including yours - contributes to who we are as Church and reveals Christ Himself to the world.

The Annual Catholic Appeal is one important way for us to share our story and to reach out to those who are suffering and in need, the weak and the abandoned, in every neighborhood and community in our archdiocese. Your generous response will help make possible many remarkable stories of hope and joy!

All of these stories tell one story...the story of Christ among us. Your support helps make the story of our Catholic Church in St. Louis complete. Please know that your and your loved ones are in my prayers.

 

Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson
Archbishop of St. Louis
