The Archdiocese of St. Louis Annual Catholic Appeal.
“It is in giving that we receive”
The $13 million dollar appeal is a truly concrete way we can help bring others to Jesus Christ and build His Church. The appeal supports Catholic education, youth programs and retreats, marriage preparation, the education and formation of our priests and deacons, while establishing many other channels of grace. Building the Church is a spiritual endeavor to strengthen faith through service to the poor, those who are homeless and hungry, the sick and those imprisoned by poverty in its many forms.
“Go, build My Church,” were the words of Christ, miraculously spoken to St. Francis from the Cross. He was awakened to a new zeal, founding the Order of the Franciscans and a renewal – and building – of the universal Church. "Build My Church" was to show the ways the Church in St. Louis is being built through the various agencies funded through the campaign.
The video is a "movie trailer" based project and was created to inspire a joy in the everyday good works of the faith.
