Catholic Stewardship Appeal - This year’s CSA theme of “walking together” is a call to each of us to join with our brothers and sisters in support of the local Church—the Diocese of Jefferson City—which is comprised of 95 parishes and 15 missions! You should be receiving a letter from Bishop Gaydos very soon asking for your generous support of the Catholic Stewardship Appeal, if you haven’t already.  Please consider renewing a previous gift or making a new pledge this year—in any amount that’s comfortable to you—and return the card in the envelope provided.
