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!
