A Message from Archbishop Carlson on the Annual Appeal
One constant in Mary’s life, in the midst of great uncertainty, was her complete confidence in God and His plan for her. From the beginning, when the angel Gabriel announced that she would be the Mother of God, until her Son’s crucifixion, burial and resurrection, Mary remained of one heart. At a time when so much is being asked of our Catholic families, I am thankful for your ongoing generosity. Your extraordinary sacrifices are a true reflection of Mary’s willingness to be of “one heart, in charity.”
Most Reverend Robert J. Carlson
Archbishop of St. Louis
