ABCD 101

ABCD reintroduces Hope into the world by assisting the widow, the orphan, the alien, the oppressed and the poor. ABCD also works to protect the rights and the dignity of all.

We are called to give of ourselves to others, most especially to those who need it, and if we open our hearts, we will find countless chances to do so. An opportunity to give of yourself to others is through your support of the Archbishop’s Charities and Development Drive (ABCD).

ABCD represents your participation in spiritual and corporal works of mercy above and beyond what one can do individually or just at the parish level.

The money you entrust to the Archdiocese of Miami through your pledge to the ABCD is used to support the works of mercy. Together we are able to educate and evangelize; support struggling parishes and schools; assist in the formation of families and priests. And, through multiple charities, we are able to care for the sick, the elderly, the immigrants, the less fortunate, and the spiritually poor—all of us who need God’s word, the sacraments, and the teachings of the Church.

To make your pledge, go to and make sure you list St. Hugh as your parish.
