Together we are the Church
2021 ABCD Goal $295,999.00. We have $ 204,520.00 in pledges. We have received $ 87,848.82 in payments. Our Pledge Balance is $ 116,671.18. We need $91,479.00 more in pledges to reach our goal.
We still need your support more than ever now! If you have not donated to ABCD 2021, you still can.
Your gift to the ABCD allows the Archdiocese of Miami to help those in need just as Christ calls us to mirror the love of Christ by putting your faith into action and making a gift of hope today.
You can do so today by visiting: www.isupportabcd.org.
You Make A Difference! Your Support Is Greatly Appreciated! Thank you!
Every year our parish contributes to the Archbishop Charities and Development Drive (ABCD), as does every parish in Miami These contributions are tremendously important. They are used, among other things to fund the seminaries that train our priests, and to support parochial schools in low-income neighborhoods, like St. Mary’s in Little Haiti. The money we all contribute is used to take care of the elderly indigent, to help poor couples welcome their children into the world instead of aborting them, and to feed and clothe the mentally ill who sadly live on the sidewalks of our downtown.
In short, the great works of charity of the Catholic Church, which includes spiritual formation in the faith, is made possible in Miami by the ABCD.
We are asking that EVERY family at Our Lady of The Lakes Church, contribute to this important mission. It is simply our duty as Catholics and as role models for our children and the wider community. There is no reason why we cannot achieve 100% participation.
Please take a moment to consider how much you can pledge this very day. It can be arranged to be paid monthly if that works better for your family. What is important is to commit to the charity that is the hallmark of the honorable Christian.
