We thank those who have already responded to this year’s appeal and ask those who have not to consider the following facts:
The Catholic Ministries Appeal supports our efforts to:
LIVE and SHARE OUR FAITH by providing support for religious education programs for public school children, faith formation for those receiving the Sacraments, and vocations for the formation of our Priests, Deacons and Lay Leaders.
CARE FOR GOD’S PEOPLE through support for the great works of our Parish Outreach programs and Catholic Charities. The Appeal also supports other programs that help us care for God’s people, including: our hospital and prison ministries that reach out to people at the most vulnerable times of their lives, Respect Life initiatives, and our Mission in the Dominican Republic.
BUILD GOD’S KINGDOM by supporting programs that reach out to Catholics of all races and backgrounds because we are one family united in Christ. We celebrate special needs Masses for children and adults, and we have vibrant college campus ministry and dynamic youth ministry programs that encourage our young people to live their faith each day.
You can make a difference in or parish and in the lives of those around us. Please consider making a gift to this year’s appeal. You may send your gift directly to the diocese or drop it off at the rectory.
