A Message From Our Chief Development Officer, Tony Brandolino
“The Lord Sustains His People,” our theme for the 2013 Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal, reminds us that as the Lord sustains us, we sustain the Lord’s work in our world! One of the primary ways we can support the People of God in the Diocese of Joliet is to contribute to the CMAA.
Charitable giving is a reflection of our Christian Stewardship of treasure. A gift to the CMAA proclaims your faith in a tangible way and demonstrates that all your gifts come from God and that we do well to return a measure to the Lord. Giving back to God, either through contributions to your parish, the CMAA, or other worthwhile charities requires a sacrifice, one that recognizes God’s generosity to us individually.
Thank you for visiting our web page! I invite you to learn more about the many fine ministries funded by generous donations to the CMAA by clicking on News/Events. You may want to consider becoming a pillar of the diocese and take a leadership role in supporting the appeal by becoming a member of the Deo Gratias Society, helping ensure the continuation of numerous vital ministries that provide hope and love to individuals, families, and schools throughout our seven-county diocese.
If you are interested in Planned Giving, I ask you to consider making a planned gift or estate plan commitment by becoming a member of The Lumen Christi (Light of Christ) Legacy Society that will provide continued support of the work of the Church for generations to come.
Please take a moment to Meet the Staff of the Development/Stewardship Office. We are available to help you in any way that we can and provide you with information and assistance. Should you decide to Contribute to the 2013 Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal, we welcome your donation and express our most sincere thanks and appreciation!
If you have any questions or need personal assistance, please contact any member of the Development Office.
