As we enthusiastically launch the 2024 United Catholic Appeal (UCA), it is with deep gratitude and a joyful heart that I thank you for your unselfish generosity. Your financial support for the pastoral, charitable and diocesan ministries of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis is a bold example of how we are United in the Eucharist. Through the stewarding and sharing of your treasure, you are magnifying the impact we can have in central and southern Indiana, and beyond.


In a time of many challenges and difficulties, the call to help bring the people of our archdiocese closer to Jesus Christ through our many ministries and programs grows louder every day. And to answer that call, we need your support.  Our goal for the 2024 United Catholic Appeal is $6.3 million. The needs for each of the ministries mentioned in this case statement are what make up our goal amount each year. We are fortunate that 100% of gifts to the United Catholic Appeal go straight to ministry. Whether you give $5 a month or $500 a month, your gift will make a lasting impact on someone’s life. 


Thank you again for your generosity and support. Without donors like you, so many would not have the ability to know, love, and serve the Lord. May the grace of God make us truly one in Him, United in the Eucharist.

With assurance of my prayers and best wishes for you, I remain


Sincerely yours in Christ,

Archbishop, Archdiocese of Indianapolis

Almighty Father, through your Son, Jesus Christ,
you send us forth to love as you have loved us.


United in the Eucharist, grant us generous and faithful hearts,
as we love our neighbor, as we clothe the poor,
as we feed the hungry, as we care for the sick,
as we speak your Word to others, as we share your blessings.


Be our joy, strength, and guide,
that we may become one Body, one Spirit in Christ,
to the praise of your glory.
