Catholic Charities Annual Appeal

Your tax deductible gift assists many ministries in North Alabama. From helping the poor, assisting those affected by disaster, engaging our youth in religious education and scouting programs, to offering support to those with intellectual and developmental disablilites and educating our seminarians...every dollar counts. An online giving option is available through the Diocese of Birmingham Website.

Thank you for sharing what you have with those who need your help. Express your Thanksgiving to God, and may God continue to bless us all.

Propagation of the Faith Special Collection - October 17/18
