As followers of Christ who embodied perfect charity we are called to support the charitable outreach efforts of our Archdiocesan Church. Much like you are asked to support the pastoral programs of your parish, you are also called to provide for the needs of the wider Church of northern Colorado.
As your archbishop, I am committed to full transparency and change in the Church. In 2018, I created the website promise.archden.org to educate the faithful on the archdiocese’s handling, prevention, and response policies regarding the crisis. I encourage you to visit the website. I have also committed to have an independent review of all priest files related to the sexual abuse of minors. Be assured that 100% of your Appeal gift will support ministry operations and that no Appeal funds were, are, or will ever be used for legal expenses or settlements. Donate to the Appeal with confidence knowing that your gift will be prudently invested in programs that evangelize our faith and serve others.
Once you register at archden.org/donate, your credit card will be automatically charged a designated amount every month. Both you and the archdiocese benefit. The process is easy, the size of your gift grows significantly on a monthly basis, and you can increase, pause, or stop your monthly donation at any time.
There are many ministries that face increased demands for their services every year. For example, the number of men, women, and children living on the streets continues to rise, the need to make lifelong disciples for Christ through catechesis instruction has never been more compelling, and the financial outlay associated with the education of today’s seminarians grows every year. It is my hope that your additional sacrifice will help offset the increase in costs.
The total operating costs associated with last year’s Appeal were only 3.7%. As a result, more than 96 cents of every dollar received was distributed to Catholic ministries.
The Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal funds nearly forty Catholic ministries. A partial listing includes:
Nine Choirs of Angels
Levels of Leadership Giving
Please consider enrolling in the "Nine Choirs of Angels leadership Giving Society." Your participation in this giving circle may enable you to make a greater gift while ensuring the archdiocese has a consistent cash flow throughout the year. A tax statement that reflects your combined donations in calendar year 2019 will be provided in January 2020.
Guardian Angel: $1,000 - $2,499
Monthly donations count towards leadership giving. For example, $84/month places you in the Guardian Angel level.
