Ticket revenue, parking, concessions, souvenirs and naming rights ... these are terms associated with professional sports franchises.
Such revenue streams fund games that entertain us. Games and entertainment are ancillary aspects of life far beyond universal needs such food, clothing and roofs over our heads. In other words, foreign concepts to the poor and downtrodden, people striving to survive day-by-day.

Most of us are fortunate enough to have our basic needs met. Food, clothing and housing are essentials that generally are easy to come by; but for thousands in the archdiocese, the reality is much different.
Through the Annual Catholic Appeal, Catholics are called to build the Church through their generous support, which makes possible thousands of miracles in the lives of those the Church serves every day.

As the Annual Catholic Appeal kicks off in parishes across the archdiocese this week, Catholics are called to build the Church through their generous support, which makes possible thousands of miracles in the lives of those the Church serves every day.
Today, we announce and celebrate the success of the 2016 Annual Catholic Appeal. More than 51,000 households contributed almost 15 million to help build the Church. Thank you for your unwavering stewardship. By giving like this, even in the midst of the Beyond Sunday Campaign, you once again have demonstrated our unity and shown why St. Louis is such a remarkable archdiocese.
