CATHOLIC SERVICES APPEAL 2017-2018 will kick off November 4-5th. This annual appeal helps fund the ongoing work of our diocese in Clergy Formation, Catholic Education, Life-Charity-Justice issues, Pastoral Ministries to our young adults/college students, and in support of Cedarbrake (diocesan retreat center).
The 2016-2017 Catholic Services Appeal kicks off Nov. 5-6. This annual appeal for the Diocese of Austin has some significant changes this year. Look for the colorful new “Living Water” pledge cards in the pews that weekend. Watch for a letter from the Bishop with your personalized pledge card, which can be returned with your pledge at any time, even before the campaign begins.
Hands of Mercy is the theme for this year’s annual Catholic Services Appeal for the Diocese of Austin. Your donation to the CSA is a powerful witness of God’s love. By helping those in need, promoting a culture of life, supporting religious vocations, and educating our youth, you are becoming an instrument of Christ’s love and providing him with the hands through which he is to bless the world. Through your donations to the CSA, you are assisting the Church of Central Texas in five key ways.
