As Catholics, we are called to not only live our faith for ourselves but in community with one another.  A living faith is an active faith and one that follows the example Jesus set for us. It brings us together to celebrate the Eucharist, to share our gifts, and to lift others up so that they may discover the gifts they, too, have to offer. 

One way that Catholics in Maine can help their faith come alive is by contributing to the annual Catholic Appeal. Each year, ministries supported by the appeal touch the lives of tens of thousands of people across the state, from newborns to seniors.

As a community of faith, we are called to be witnesses to the Gospel, changing individual hearts one at a time and transforming the communities where we live. This is our work, the work of our Church, made possible through your support.  Please look into your heart and step out in faith by prayerfully considering a gift in support of the 2022 Catholic Appeal.


Gifts may also be mailed to:
Catholic Appeal
510 Ocean Avenue
Portland, ME 04103-4936
