2019 Diocesan Support Appeal

The 2019 Diocesan Support Appeal has begun and this year's theme is "We are His Hands." We are all called to respond to the needs of our brothers and sisters both here in our parish and in the diocese. Yet most of us are not able to drop everything and work for the Church. Most of us are not qualified to provide such services as counseling, refugee resettlement, adoption, natural family planning, prison ministry, sacramental preparation, and many more. But we can, through financial contributions support the work of the Church in areas such as these. 

The DSA provides support for more than 20 services that Catholic Charities offers throughout the diocese. The Appeal also provides 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. 

So help us to serve those in need by contributing to this important fund today! Click here to DONATE ONLINE NOW!
