2019 Archbishop’s Charity and Development Drive (ABCD) Begins Hope has a name… Jesus.

Hope has a name: Jesus. As we help support the Archbishop’s various charities through the ABCD campaign, with the goal of raising $289,000, let us see how this makes us One in Charity.

The Archbishop’s Charity and Development Drive supports priestly formation, evangelization and ministry, and charitable works. By being One in Charity, the bulk of our contribution, 44% or $125,000, goes to support social ministries and works of mercy among the needy. These programs include the Catholic Charities, the Respect Life office, bereavement services and ministry to the elderly, the Monroe County Outreach, citizenship programs, food banks and assistance to the homeless, as well as to support parishes and schools in need throughout the Archdiocese.

Your contribution of $1 a day, or $365 per year, to the ABCD means that each month you’d be contributing approximately $13 towards helping us reach out to those in various needs.

The Lord is generous with his gifts. Let us be One in Charity by sharing them with others.
