***************

Since the beginning of Christianity, the professed unity as One Catholic Church of the various Christian communities or parishes has always been given visible expression by means of the collection which here in our diocese is called the Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA).

For instance, as St. Paul preached the faith and founded new Christian communities outside of Jerusalem, he taught them to become one body, one in mind and heart, sharing with one another everything they had. A very important practice he would teach a community before leaving it to move to another place and found a new one was the collection for the “saints” or poor in Jerusalem. St. Paul was very anxious to have this collection made and sent to the headquarters in Jerusalem since he regarded it as a sign and a pledge of unity of all the communities (presently called parishes) as One Church (See 1 Cor 16:1-4;   2 Cor 8:4; Romans 15:26-28; Gal 2:8-10).

The Universal or Catholic Church today consists of local churches called dioceses all over the world, and each diocese consists of parishes and each parish consists of families.

Thus, as Catholic Christians, our support for the Catholic Church finds tangible form in: 1) our weekly or Sunday contribution for the support of our parish, 2) our ACA contribution for the support of the missions within our diocese, and 3) our contributions via the Special Collections for the support of the Catholic Church’s missions beyond our diocese.

All for the greater honor and glory of God. 

Sincerely,

 

Fr. Antonio Morales
