Your CSA gifts at work
Your gift to the Catholic Services Appeal makes a difference in countless lives throughout the Archdiocese of Detroit and beyond. The more than 100 ministries, programs, and services the CSA funds are Opening Doors to Witness Christ each and every day.
Be assured that no CSA dollars have ever been — or ever will be — used to settle claims of any nature against the Archdiocese, or to support projects outside of the Archdiocese, other than six specific national collections of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. The archdiocesan lay Finance Council oversees the distribution of CSA funds to ensure all reach the ministries, programs, and services for which they are intended. (A comprehensive list can be found on the Archdiocese of Detroit website, at aod.org/csa.)
In his pastoral letter, Unleash the Gospel, Archbishop Allen H. Vigneron asks us to make Jesus “known by our word and deed” — timely guidance for the 2021 Catholic Services Appeal.
The ministries, programs, and services supported by your generosity meet the spiritual and physical needs of parishes and countless individuals throughout the Archdiocese and southeast Michigan.
When we embrace the CSA for carrying out the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy, we witness Christ, and in turn, we open doors so others may also develop a deeper relationship with Him. We also extend our personal involvement in our local Church beyond our home parishes.
The CSA enables us, the Church in Detroit, to carry out Christ’s ministry of mercy and love throughout southeast Michigan and beyond — works no one individual or parish could possibly do alone.
Online giving helps the Archdiocese of Detroit answer our Holy Father’s call to care for “our common home.” Online payments allow the CSA Office to save on postage and paper, because they eliminate the need for monthly mailings. With thousands of generous donors contributing to the CSA each year, this amounts to a considerable environmental savings — and is good stewardship.
We encourage you to set up your gift or pledge online at give.aod.org.
Please specify your parish on the donation form. If you choose not to use the online giving portal, but would like to make your pledge payments electronically, you may call (888) 331-8695.
