Archbishop Gregory has asked for our help. His Archbishop’s Annual Appeal Campaign has just begun and he needs the support and participation of all of us at Christ the King parish. This Appeal used to be held in October but has now been moved to February.
The Archbishop’s Annual Appeal is a vital part of who we are as an Archdiocese. It helps fund the Archdiocese of Atlanta so they can accomplish missions that we cannot on the parish level such as the Vocations program – all of your “Men in Black” who serve here at the Cathedral are beneficiaries of your generosity, either through our seminary training or continuing formation programs.
This Appeal also funds so many other programs which lets the Catholic Community practice what it preaches. It helps to fund the Pro-Life Ministry, Young Adult and Youth Ministry, Disabilities Ministry, Prison Ministry and so many more. Through Catholic Charities, Disaster Relief is funded as well as Counseling, and help with Pregnancy, Parenting and Adoption.
Christ the King’s assessed goal for the Appeal is $344,230. In the next weeks, we will have information in the pews about the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal and how you can participate. You can visit the Archdiocesan website at www.archatl.com and click on Archbishop’s Annual Appeal for more information.
I thank you in advance for your generosity as together we build the kingdom of God in north Georgia.
