Catholic Family Sharing Appeal
As Catholics, we are called to acknowledge the love and care of our generous Creator and love Him in return by loving our neighbor as He loves us. God is with us. And participating in the Catholic Family Sharing Appeal with prayers and financial support has a direct impact on our neighbors and our own families.
As you consider your gift to the Catholic Family Sharing Appeal, take time and reflect on the following points:
- Thanksgiving - our offering is a grateful response to the immense love God has shown for us. God is first in our lives. We are only responding to what God has already done for us.
- Sacrificial - To "sacrifice" means to make sacred, not to give until it hurts. Through sacrificial giving "we make sacred" the work of our daily lives. Praying about our decision is necessary to truly offer it from the heart.
- Prayerfully Planned - This is a decision that requires prayer, thought and time. We are not called to give merely what we have left over but we are called to prayerfully consider our gifts and resources
