The Diocese of Juneau will be participating in a national fundraising event – #iGiveCatholic!
#iGiveCatholic is an online giving event that provides an opportunity for Catholics to show our support to our parishes, schools, and affiliated not-for-profit social service agencies located within the Diocese.
On Thanksgiving, we have a day for giving thanks. Following that, we have two days for purchasing gifts for loved ones – Black Friday and Cyber Monday. And now we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, individuals and organizations around the world will come together for one common purpose: To celebrate generosity and to give.
We know that, for Catholics, generosity and giving have a profound meaning. As children of God, giving is the ultimate expression of mercy as we feed the hungry, clothe the naked, give shelter to the homeless, and preserve our Catholic heritage for future generations. Compelled to action by our shared faith, Catholics are energized to give back knowing that little is much when God is in it.
It is also an opportunity for Catholics to affirm our faith as disciples of Jesus Christ by sharing our gifts out of love for God and one another. The goal of #iGiveCatholic is to inspire the Catholic community to come together as faithful stewards and to “Give Catholic” on #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back.
This year, #iGiveCatholic takes place on Monday, November 26, from 9:00 PM to 8:59 PM.
