Frequently Asked Questions
Learn About the Campaign’s Impact on Our Catholic Community
What is One Faith, One Family, One Future in Christ?
The campaign will be conducted in every parish throughout the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas. In addition, Archbishop Naumann will conduct a Leadership Gift Phase of solicitations.
Why do we need a major fundraising campaign?
Will the One Faith, One Family, One Future in Christ campaign continue in light of COVID-19?
Yes, the One Faith campaign will continue through the end of 2020.
Many of our faithful across the Archdiocese have already contributed generously to help us realize our vision for the future. As these faithful have been called to participate, it is also important that we ask all our parishioners in Block Three to prayerfully consider their support and bring our One Faith campaign to its conclusion.

What is the time frame of the campaign?
All parishes will conduct their campaigns as part of a “block” of parishes between July 2018 and June 2020: The first group of parishes (Block One) launched the campaign in July of 2018; the second group of parishes (Block Two) launched the campaign in January of 2019; while some of the third group of parishes (Block Three) launched their campaigns in late 2019, others were launched in March, after Archbishop’s Call to Share, and immediately before COVID-19 resulted in the suspension of Mass. These Block Three parishes will be extending their campaigns through December 2020 to allow additional time for everyone to be invited to join in support of the One Faith campaign.
