THE 2017 CHALLENGE AND THE
ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL CASE

2017 Annual Catholic Appeal Key Dates

February 11-12 - Announcement Weeked
February 18-19 - Commitment Weekend
February 25-26 - Follow Up Weekend

2017 Annual Catholic Appeal Theme:
"Love Your Neighbor As Yourself"

Two purposes are served by the way in which the Annual Catholic Appeal is designed. First, it provides much needed funding for our schools, parishes, programs of religious education and ministerial formation, efforts to respect life, and Catholic Relief Services. Second, it provides additional revenue in the form of rebates to those parishes that exceed their goals in cash raised. Again this year, 100% of paid funds received over a parish goal will be returned to the parish whenever possible.

The funding provided to the Archdiocese limits the need to increase the cathedracticum. The funding provided to the parishes that receive rebates helps them to meet their needs with funds that are not assessed by the Archdiocese. This is the very definition of a win-win situation.

Ministries, programs, and services funded
by the 2017 Annual Catholic Appeal

  1. Grants and scholarships for schools serving economically disadvantaged communities.
  2. Support parish ministries that provide religious education to children, youth, and adults in economically disadvantaged communities.
  3. Recruitment, education and formation of lay ministers and deacons.
  4. Continuing education and ongoing spiritual formation of priests.
  5. Capital grants to parishes and schools serving economically disadvantaged communities.
  6. Catholic Relief Services for aid to the poor in foreign lands.
  7. Ministries of care and comfort to those in need.
  8. SPRED (Special Religious Education) in over 100 parishes.
  9. Office of Respect Life (supporting the dignity of life from conception to natural death) - Elizabeth Ministry, Project Rachel, Project Gabriel, chastity programs for youth, etc.

FATHER ED TO STUDENTS: "LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE AT HOME, AT SCHOOL, WITH FRIENDS'

OLW Pastor Father Edward Fialkowski helped kick-off Catholic Schools Week by celebrating Mass for OLW students and teachers on Monday, January 30.

In his homily, Father Ed used two "props" to help make his point to the students (and faculty and parents).

He used a large flashlight to indicate that Jesus is the light of the world and that in Baptism, the students were joined to Christ so that they could be like him and be good and honest and truthful as they try to please the Lord.

But Jesus' message in the gospel for Monday told that if they hide the light, such as by putting it in or under a pail or box, they are not helping.

The students were reminded that they are to be "lights" for other people, including family members, by helping at home and by helping and encouraging friends by helping them do what is right. They are to be "lights" to everyone who sees them and let their love for Jesus show by letting their "light" shine for all to see.

"ECUMENICAL PROGRESS MARKS 500TH
Anniversary Of The Reformation"

The very Rev. Thomas A. Baima, vicar for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs of the Catholic Archdiocese of Chicago, and the Rev. Dr. Lowell G. Almen, co-chair of the U.S. Lutheran-Roman Catholic Dialogue, will present perspectives on the journey of Lutherans and Catholics that began in conflict some 500 years ago at the time of the Refornation and in recent years is leading to reconciliation that effects the broader Christian church. The event, "From Conflict to Communion: Catholic and Lutheran Perspectives," will be held at Our Saviour's Lutheran Church, 1234 N. Arlington Heights Rd., on Saturday, February 25, from 9:30 to 11:15 a.m. The occasion will include a short prayer service, opportunity for questions from the audience, and refreshments. The event is free and open to the general public.
