Heavenly Father, You call each of us to be missionary disciples.

As we strive to live a holy life, let all things we do, be for your glory.

Help us to follow in the footsteps of Blessed Stanley Rother, as we bear joyful witness to the Gospel.

Loving and gracious God, open our hearts to share in the mission and ministry of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City through the Annual Catholic Appeal.

Strengthen our resolve to be like Your Son Jesus Christ, to do all things for your glory. We ask this through Christ out Lord.



Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

You are a blessing to the Church in central and western Oklahoma!

A strong parish, a strong community and a strong personal faith commitment all contribute to a strong Archdiocese. Your support of the 2018 Annual Catholic Appeal can make the Church stronger as we journey together as missionary disciples.

This year’s appeal theme is “Do All Things for the Glory of God.” In making a financial commitment to the Annual Catholic Appeal, you express your faith in God’s goodness by sharing your God-given gifts for His glory. To be Catholic means to look beyond ourselves and to share the joys and burdens of our brothers and sisters in need. The Annual Catholic Appeal supports vital archdiocesan ministries that serve all Catholic households and families in cities and towns large and small throughout central and western Oklahoma.

Each year, the Archdiocese conducts the Annual Catholic Appeal to support Youth, Young Adult & Campus Ministry, Vocations & Seminarian Education, Evangelization & Discipleship Formation, Religious Education & Catholic Schools, Clergy Formation, Marriage & Family Life, Respect Life efforts and funding for local Hispanic Ministry and outreach in Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala.

I invite you to join me in this mission of loving service to God and our neighbors by considering a pledge of «Req1» or «Req2». Blessings are multiplied when all of us work together and we need your participation to reach our goal of $3.6 million. Through a pledge to the Appeal you help build up the Church in our Archdiocese and advance Christ’s mission to “Do All Things for the Glory of God.”

Please respond by going online to archokc.org/appeal to make your commitment. Pray for the success of this year’s Annual Catholic Appeal. Please also remember that every gift touches lives. Every gift is important.

I pray that the hope and promise of this New Year bring you abundant joy and blessing.

Sincerely yours in Christ,


Most Reverend Paul S. Coakley, S.T.L., D.D.

Archbishop of Oklahoma City
