|2021 Catholic Appeal: Let's Live Our Faith Together.
The 2021 Catholic Appeal has launched at all parishes in the Archdiocese. The Catholic Appeal raises about fifty percent of
the Archdiocese's budget. Your gift to the Appeal allows the Central Ministries of the Archdiocese to provide support to
make our parishes, schools, and communities stronger. Every gift to the Appeal makes an important difference in the lives
of so many. The theme for the 2021 Catholic Appeal is "Let's Live Our Faith Together." If all parishioners make a gift to the Appeal, we will surely reach our goal.visit www.bostoncatholicappeal.org for more information or to give online.
