The Eucharist is the “source and summit of Christian life.” It is where we experience Christ’s love and are nurtured by it. It brings us into an intimate communion with the living God and, as Pope Francis has said, if we embrace that encounter, it transforms “our life into a gift to God and to our brothers."

Through the Eucharist, we are united with Christ and are meant to grow more and more like him. That includes helping us to grow in charity towards others. We are not only called to celebrate, receive, and adore the Eucharist but, also, to live it.

One way we can do that is by giving to the annual Catholic Appeal. The appeal supports programs and ministries around the diocese that embrace the corporal and spiritual works of mercy: feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, visiting the sick, visiting the imprisoned, instructing the ignorant, and comforting the sorrowful, among others. You can read about some of the ministries below.
