Rejoice in Hope, Endure in Affliction, Persevere in Prayer
(Romans 12:12)

When you support the Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries, you are supporting your parish and a myriad of ministries, programs and other Catholic institutions that strengthen our community of faith. Now more than ever, your generous support for the Appeal is offering spiritual and material comfort and, ultimately, the blessing of HOPE to those we are called to serve, while bringing you into closer communion with the Living Christ and your archdiocesan family.

Prayer for Joyful in Hope

O, Lord Our God, You, who are the source
of our joy, of our hope

You call us to share these and our other gifts
all bestowed from You

Help us, especially in times of difficulty,
to recognize Your gifts at work
to recognize in ourselves the power to uplift

We humbly ask You, O Lord,
to bring us into closer communion with You
to nurture the hope You have given

So that we may extend it to our neighbors in need
and reflect its light into worlds darkened by despair  

So that we may come to realize
the blessed joy of following You in mission
