Prayer of the Catholic Appeal
Loving and merciful God, You gave us Jesus, Your only Son, to be our Savior, Redeemer, Brother, and Friend.
Inspire us with the gift of Your Holy Spirit, to recall our baptismal promise to be like Christ, by sharing our gifts of time, talent, and treasure with our brothers and sisters in need.
As we undertake our annual appeal, we ask for Your guidance as we strive to fulfill these promises that we offer up to You.
Give us the grace and understanding to carry out Your will as we faithfully continue Christ’s mission here in South Carolina.
With Mary, we ask this through Christ our Lord.
The Catholic Appeal of South Carolina is administered by the Office of Stewardship and Mission Advancement
