How can I help? Here is how you can help meet this year’s diocesan goal of $1,800,000. Each parish is encouraged to increase participation rather than meet individual financial goals. There are 48,000 households in 27 counties which comprise the Diocese of Kansas City – St. Joseph. Each of us is asked to prayerfully consider giving 1% of our gross income to support these efforts. If you are unable to give 1%, then a gift of any size is helpful. Rather than report parish goals, the parish will see periodic updates of how many of its members have pledged or donated to the appeal.

Thank you for your consideration in donating to the 2017 Annual Catholic Appeal.
