Catholic Sharing Appeal

Flowing from our God-given dignity, each person has basic rights and responsibilities. These include the rights to freedom of conscience and religious liberty, to raise a family, to immigrate, to live free from unfair discrimination, and to have a share of earthly goods sufficient for oneself and one’s family. People have a fundamental right to life and to those things that make life truly human: food, clothing, housing, health care, education, security, social services, and employment. Corresponding to these rights are duties and responsibilities – to one another, to our families, and to the larger society, to respect the rights of others and to work for the common good.

Each person possesses inherent dignity, with rights and responsibilities. These include freedom of conscience, family life, fair treatment, and access to basic needs like food, shelter, healthcare, education, security, services, and employment. We all bear obligations to respect others, work for the common good, and uphold these fundamental rights within society.

Stewardship Prayer

“Lord, hear our prayer as we seek to be good stewards of the many gifts you have bestowed on us. Give us wisdom to discern your will for us, strength to meet the challenge, and the grace to be steadfast in our commitment to you. Let us use our time, talent and treasure for your greater honor and glory. In your name we pray. Amen.”
