The Annual Pastoral Appeal (APA) is an annual fundraiser, or appeal, to the parishioners of the diocese asking them to contribute directly to diocesan ministries, programs and services. It is an annual invitation encouraging participation from every Catholic household to Courageously Live the Gospel and support the mission of our Church in the Diocese of St. Petersburg.
Our diocesan operations and ministries meet the physical, educational and spiritual needs of thousands within Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas counties. This allows us, as a faith community, to fulfill God’s call to discipleship by spreading the Gospel message in word and deed, serving each other in His love and mercy.
The purpose of the Annual Pastoral Appeal Office is to assist in sharing the good news of the good works in our diocesan Church, so our faithful know WHO and WHAT their direct donations support.
