Annual Catholic Appeal

Faith is Our Gift to Share
My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Peace and joy be with you and your family! In this Year of Faith,the theme of the 2013 Annual Catholic Appeal (ACA) is “Faith is Our Gift to Share”.

With Jesus Christ as the foundation of our faith, this year is a time when our faith can be rediscovered, cultivated and shared.There are many faith formation and faith enrichment programs offered throughout the Archdiocese to help you rediscover and cultivate your Catholic faith.

You also are called in a special way this year to share your faith: by teaching and modeling Christian values; by practicing works of mercy, charity, and consolation; by giving to the ACA whose ministries and services share our Catholic faith throughout the Archdiocese.  Through your ACA donations we share our faith with our children, our youth and young adults, our sick and elderly.  We share our faith when we help young couples prepare for marriage, prepare for the baptism of their child, prepare their children for First Holy Communion. We share our faith when we support our seminarians through prayer and financial gifts.  In all this, know that we at ACA continue to be good stewards of your gifts and undergo a professional financial audit yearly to maintain your trust.

I am truly grateful for your gift to the Annual Catholic Appeal.Know that you are in my prayers.May God give you joy and enthusiasm for sharing your faith in Jesus Christ and his Church!

Sincerely yours in the Risen Christ,
Most Rev. Michael J. Sheehan

Archbishop of Santa Fe Mission Statement of the Archdiocesan Pastoral Plan
On Pentecost, 2006 the Archdiocesan Pastoral Plan was promulgated by Archbishop Michael J. Sheehan. Its mission statement reads: Commissioned by Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit the Roman Catholic Church of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe is the People of God of many cultures and traditions. In union with the successor of Peter, we are a community of disciples that continues the evangelization begun by Franciscan missionaries 400 years ago through:
  • proclaiming the Gospel
  • celebrating the sacraments
  • teaching the faith
  • forming the faithful for works of service
  • evangelizing the inactive and the unchurched
  •  .......all of which bear fruit in the Kingdom of God.
The Archdiocesan Pastoral Plan needs the Annual Catholic Appeal to make its work a reality.

Mission Statement of the Annual Catholic Appeal Foundation

The Archdiocese of Santa Fe is committed to share responsibility for living the Gospel and for the intellectual and spiritual development of all Catholics by giving the People of God the opportunity to be personally involved in the ministry of the Church of Santa Fe.
