This year's theme for the Diocesan Services Fund (DSF) is "Instruments of God's Mercy." Pope Francis urged the faithful not to fall into indifference but to become active instruments of mercy.
When we follow Christ's call, it is most appropriate that we give of ourselves through stewardship for we discover that our response brings many gifts to us. The gifts given are gifts to be shared. When you give of your resources for DSF, you are answering the call of discipleship in a most concrete and effective way that benefits the common good of the whole archdiocese.
Each year the DSF operates in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston to help carry out each of the ministries of teaching and sanctifying. Of the sixty-plus programs under its umbrella, DSF brings the needed financial resources to carry out these same ministries.
