We all want to get the most bang out of the bucks that we spend. Supporting the ACA with our financial means provides an excellent opportunity to do this. Our ACA offerings support a wide diversity of works of religion and charity that benefit our parishes and the larger community. ACA funding supports the vital work of preparing men to serve as priests and as deacons. Programs of formation and enrichment are provided for persons who teach the Faith. Persons of all backgrounds are offered goods and services that meet daily needs through Catholic Charities, an agency that receives substantial ACA funding. Individuals who have experienced the trauma of divorce are offered new hope through the work of our Diocesan Marriage Tribunal, an arm of the Church’s healing ministry. Through our prayers and financial gifts to the ACA, we are supporting a wide range of essential ministries and services to persons in need.
