Dear friends in Christ,
As Catholics, we are called through Jesus Christ to be in communion with one another. In this world dominated by isolation and individualism, we are meant to come together as a People of Faith to live out the Gospel message both near and far. We answer this call because, as St. Paul reminds us in his Letter to the Romans, We are the Lord’s!
The Diocesan Services Fund allows you, the Faithful, to enable the 64 ministries of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston that are done in your name. These ministries, which no one parish can accomplish on its own, are meant to bring Christ to those in our midst.
You allow the forgotten to be remembered; the hungry to be fed; the sick, the incarcerated, and the itinerant to be ministered to. You provide the means to educate our youth, to prepare and form new Catholics, to keep the spiritual nourishment of the Sacraments available, and to form good and holy families. You help us to defend life, promote vocations, prepare our seminarians, and care for our elderly and sick clergy.
I invite you to join me in supporting DSF and helping this local Church continue to live out our Faith. Be assured of my prayers for God’s abundant blessings on you and your loved ones.
