Ministries and Programs Funded
This year’s goal of $2,500,000 provides a large amount of the income required to sustain Diocesan ministries and services. It will cost nearly $3,200,000 to completely fund the ministries. It is important to know that 100% of your contribution to the Bishop’s Ministry Appeal Trust is used exclusively and solely to support the programs and ministries described in accompanying materials and below. All of the funds collected over your parish goal will remain at your parish.

Your generosity assists in building strong Catholic families, promotes prayer for vocations and encourages young people to pursue the call to religious life.

Your help promotes the full, active participation of God’s people in transforming and redeeming work of Christ in the liturgy and sacraments.
Your time, treasure and talents help so many see that all we are and all we have are gifts from God. Faithful stewardship is more than occasional acts of charity and service. It is a way of life, a commitment to the giving of ourselves to others in gratitude for all the blessings we have received.

Your love nurtures life-long faith formation experiences for all people in the Diocese through well-trained catechists.
Your support helps in the ministry of charity. Permanent Deacons assist in the celebration of the divine mysteries, bless and assist in marriages, proclaim the Gospel and preach and preside over funerals, and dedicate themselves to various ministries within the diocese.
