"Jesus said to them again, 'Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, so I send you.'
And when He had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, 'Receive the Holy Spirit.' "

~ John 20:21-22 ~

CSA

2020 CSA Campaign

Great news, we will be able to continue to support the Archdiocese through the annual Catholic Services Appeal. Thanks to Covid, the Archdiocese decided to delay the campaign until the Fall. It is however possible to make your contribution to the 2020 campaign at any time. The best way is to visit stgerald.aodcsa.org and make a one-time gift or spread your pledge out. This eliminates both the work in the CSA office and in the St. Gerald Office, plus the Archdiocese pays any credit card processing fees.

Because of Covid, there is an effort to move more parishioners to this online platform. The Archdiocese embraces technology to reduce the work of processing. Instead, those workers can get to the mission of the Catholic Church. If you have not tried the online support yet, consider it this year. If not, in the fall we launch the mailer campaign with the pledge processing card to anyone who has not already made an online pledge.

~ Thank you for your generosity to the CSA ~
