ABCD Campaign - 2023
With a grateful heart, thank you to those who have generously made a commitment to the 2023 Archbishop’s Charities and Development Drive (ABCD). As of last weekend (02/26/2023), 157 of parish and school families have responded. Through your generosity, the ABCD can bring hope by serving others in their time of need, help our children continue on their journey of learning and prepare them for the future, and raise a unified voice for peace and dignity of all human life. Together, we are One in Faith, One in Hope and One in Charity.
If you have yet to make a gift to the ABCD, we need your help and cooperation to reach our parish goal of $154,166. Please make your pledge and return it directly to the Archdiocese of Miami. You can also make your pledge online at www.isupportabcd.org, designating St. Kevin as your parish. We are confident that, with God’s help and yours, we will unite as a Catholic community to spread the love of Christ and bring Christ to people no matter who they are or where they are. Thank you, and God bless you.
ABCD—Legacy of Love, Hope, and Charity
Jesus left a beautiful legacy of love- a unifying love. It is one of the greatest gifts he has given us, and our faith calls us to live out that love by sharing it with others. His love is kind and patient; it is enduring through difficult times and rejoices in the truth. The love we are called to live is not found in career success or material things, but rather is centered on Jesus, and living out his legacy by helping others and holding them in our hearts, as He did.
For the past 65 years, the Archdiocese of Miami has been bringing the love of Christ to people - no matter who they are or where they live. That has been made possible, in part, because of people like you. Through the Archbishop’s Charities and Development Drive, the ABCD, you help the church bring the gift of God’s love to those most in need- above and beyond what happens in your parish. The good works that ABCD makes possible are a testimony to our faith, our love, and our compassion.
As Catholics, we commit ourselves to serve those in need, to answer the call to action to make God present in all our lives. Through your support of the ABCD, you are helping those in need and strengthening their faith in their time of need. The ABCD serves our community by giving hope to the hopeless, strengthening the faith of the discouraged, and providing charity to those most in need. The ABCD supports the many ministries of the Catholic Church in the three counties of our Archdiocese, which represent concrete ways in which we perform the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.
It is not enough to say we are Christians: we must live the faith, not only with our words, but with our actions. We invite you to give a gift of hope- a genuine act of love- by opening your hearts in support of the ABCD and donate today. Every gift makes a difference and changes lives. Through the ABCD, you help the church bring the gift of God’s love to those most in need- above and beyond what happens in your parish.
You can obtain a pledge envelope at the church entrance or from the parish office, or you can make your gift online at www.isupportabcd.org, putting St. Kevin as your parish. Thank you and God bless you!
How You Make a Difference
The donation you make through your pledge to the ABCD is used to support the works of mercy throughout the year. Together we are able to educate and evangelize; support struggling parishes and schools; assist in the formation of families and priests. And, through multiple charities, we are able to care for the sick, the elderly, the immigrants, the less fortunate, and the spiritually poor—all of us who need God’s word, the sacraments, and the teachings of the Church.
See to the right how your donation makes a difference.
