Transforming Catholic Education and Investing in Parish Communities

Thanks to the gifts of more than 25,500 Catholic families, the Beyond Sunday campaign, led by the Roman Catholic Foundation, concluded in October 2017 as the most successful capital campaign in the history of the Archdiocese of St. Louis. The $110 million raised through Beyond Sunday will transform Catholic education in the Archdiocese of St. Louis and invest in local parish communities.
