Have you considered that this time of challenge and uncertainty could possibly be the Church in Detroit’s finest hour? This is a time for our parishes and communities to do what we do best: rise up. In southeast Michigan, we are no strangers to challenges, and we, with the grace and love of God, have always been resilient, rising from the ashes and overcoming these trials.
Over the past year, even amidst trial, we haven’t stopped working to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, or equip individuals to know the love of God.This pandemic has not stopped us from sharing the Gospel! But this mission isn’t something we can do alone.
Your generosity to the Catholic Services Appeal makes all these efforts possible. It brings livestreamed Mass to those who can’t attend, powers our Christian Service programs and outreach, helps us learn how to better share Jesus in our diverse and multicultural Detroit community, and helps individuals and families grow closer to God even while physically distanced. Your gifts to the CSA does all this, and so much more.
Jesus told his disciples, “Rise up, and be not afraid.” Now it is our turn to answer the call, to rise up and be united in the mission of Christ. Please, prayerfully consider making a one-time or recurring gift to help continue this mission and to help each parish, family, and individual throughout the Archdiocese bring the hope of Jesus and his message to Southeast Michigan and beyond.

St. Anne’s target for this years CSA campaign is $56,743.00 which has been reduced by 15% due to the Covid pandemic. The AOD is well aware of the limited resources available to our parish families.
As always, thank you for your generosity during these difficult times.
