What is the Catholic Ministry Appeal?

Our Catholic Ministry Appeal allows us to extend the reach of our faith beyond the walls of ourselves and our individual parishes. The impact we have in our community is all thanks to the kindness, grace, and generosity of our diocesan family. The power of unity and sacrifice can lead to remarkable achievements beyond our imagination. “When we come together, our selfless actions can do things we never thought possible,” said Bishop Parkes.

Through the Catholic Ministry Appeal, we served 214,189 meals and sheltered 1,552 clients through Catholic Charities; have six new seminarians studying for the priesthood; ordained eight men as permanent deacons; and held three visioning and implementation events.

In 2024, we will work together to raise $9 million to ensure these ministries can continue bringing ministry to life with every dollar donated toward our goal directly funding our ministries, outreach, and programs.

And, it is important to note that all of the ministries included in this appeal have a direct tie to our call to be missionary disciples, bringing others into a relationship with Jesus Christ.
