Annual Catholic Appeal

Many families in our parish recently received or will be receiving shortly the Annual Catholic Appeal mailing from Cardinal Cupich. On behalf of those served by the ministries, parishes, and schools that receive funding from the Appeal, we thank you for your gifts. Please return your response as soon as possible. The Annual Catholic Appeal offers a wonderful opportunity to answer the call “Walking on the road with Jesus.” In addition to providing for ministries and services throughout the archdiocese, the Appeal also funds services that are of great help here in our parish. For example, Appeal funds support Religious Education, Social Outreach and more. As we contemplate God’s many gifts to us, we should also reflect on our gratitude. Your financial support for the work of our parish, our archdiocese, and the Church throughout the world is one way to express this gratitude. Please give what you can to the 2023 Annual Catholic Appeal. Follow this link to discover more.

Donate now!

Remember that donations in excess of our Appeal Goal are returned to OLBS in the form of a rebate. The 2021 rebate funded new sound systems in both Queen of the Rosary and St. Julian worship sites, and work is beginning to upgrade video and livestream capabilities with the 2022 rebate. Fr. Dan is working with parish leadership to determine how to direct our 2023 rebate.
