Catholics nationwide are pitching in for #iGiveCatholic is nationally recognized as the official Catholic Giving Day on Tuesday, Dec. 1, and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia is also participating for the first time.
The effort offers a way for Catholics to affirm their faith as disciples of Jesus Christ by sharing their gifts out of love for God and one another.
It also gives parishes, schools, and nonprofit organizations the chance to rally support for their individual ministries and make a difference in their community, with the goal of raising as many funds as possible for these important missions.
Archbishop Nelson J. Pérez encourages Catholics throughout the five-county archdiocese to #iGiveCatholic on #GivingTuesday, also Dec. 1.
“God calls each of us to receive his abundant gifts in our lives and generously share them with others. Please join me in saying #iGiveCatholic,” the archbishop said in a video recently released on social media. “Thank you for your kindness and generosity. Your support demonstrates tremendous heart and a deep compassion for your brothers and sisters in Christ.”
