It's that time of year again! We have kicked off the 2018 Diocesan Support Appeal and this year's theme is "We are Called." The DSA provides support for more than 20 services that Catholic Charities offers throughout the diocese as well as funding for Vocations, Education Ministries (providing over 30 different programs), Multicultural Ministries, Eucharistic Congress, and the Housing Ministry. Some of these ministries provide services beyond the scope of individual parishes and some exist for the sole purpose of assisting parishes in their own missions to teach, evangelize and serve.
Theme: Each of us is called to share our gifts with those in need; we are called to bring the light of Christ to the lost and un-churched; and we are also called to pray for and encourage vocations to the priesthood and religious life.
This year, our parish assessment is $167,576 - any excess of our goal will be returned to the parish but any shortfall will be taken from our savings too.
Please consider a generous pledge to this year's campaign - check out www.charlottediocese.org/dsa for more information and to give online.
