On behalf of Archbishop Gustavo and Fr. Tony, we invite you and your family to offer a sacrificial gift of love by participating in this year’s Archbishop’s Appeal for Ministries, “Resilient in Faith and Service.” Your gift will support the formation of priests and deacons to serve you, your families, and individuals locally; support the formation of lay leaders to serve as catechists in our parish religious programs; offer a Catholic education to families in need; broadcast the televised Mass; and share Christ’s love as it feeds, clothes, shelters, and cares for the most vulnerable. The Lord wants us to trust Him completely. The practice of stewardship and giving selflessly in love helps us to grow in trust with our Lord. We are not owners of anything, but rather caretakers of God’s gifts. We are called to share those gifts to make Christ’s love present through ministries serving our community.
Please pray and find it in your heart to make a sacrificial gift to this year’s Appeal. Gifts can be given online at www.archsa.org/archbishops-appeal, by using text-to-give 210.750.6712 keyword APPEAL, by calling 210.734.1604, or with the Appeal envelope that we will have available in the church. Please make sure to indicate that you are giving from St. Francis of Assisi San Antonio so that your gift can go towards our parish goal of 25% participation. Please be aware that submitting a prayer request through the appeal counts towards our 25% goal. You must fill out all of the required information when submitting your prayer request; it cannot be anonymous. Thank you and may God bless you and your loved ones.
