(formerly Annual Diocesan Appeal) 

My Dear Friends in Christ,

          For 23 years, the Annual Diocesan Catholic Ministries Appeal has provided a way for the faithful Catholics of our diocese to share with God and His Church a portion of the gifts He has given to us. Thousands of our brothers and sisters in need are given hope by your gifts of time, talent and treasure shared each year through the Appeal. I am so grateful for the support of the Church.

        The 2013 Annual Diocesan Catholic Ministries Appeal was included as one of the elements of the ROOTED IN FAITH, REJOICE IN HOPE capital campaign which in addition to providing annual operating funds for critical Catholic programs and services also is building up the future by solidifying our Priest Retirement, providing needed improvements and an addition Immaculate Heart of Mary Seminary and projects specifically identified at each parish.

        In 2014, the Annual Diocesan Catholic Ministries Appeal has resumed its regular annual schedule and you are invited to continue your annual support. Please do visit the Catholic Foundation of Southern Minnesota's website to learn more fully about the important work funded by the Annual Appeal. www.catholicfsmn.org.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Rev. John M. Quinn
Bishop of Winona

 What is the Annual Diocesan Appeal?

The Annual Diocesan Appeal (ADA) is a primary source of funding to help sustain and expand ministries in the 114 parishes, 30 schools, seminary, programs and departments of the diocesan church.

Why do we need these ministries?

The Catholic Church serves the needs of many people in our local diocese and beyond. While some of these services are offered at the parish level, it is often more effective when many join together in ministry and service of the people of the diocese. Each diocesan ministry exists to support the work of our local parishes.

What should I give?

A Gift of Prayer - pray for the Church, for our diocesan family and for all people who support or are supported by the ADA.

Time and Talent - volunteer in your parish, school, community and in diocesan ministries.

A Sacrificial Gift - consider making a pledge or one-time financial gift. Please continue working toward your Stewardship Commitment of 10%; designating 5% to your parish, 1% to the diocese, and 4% of annual income to other charities. - volunteer in your parish, school, community and in diocesan ministries. - pray for the Church, for our diocesan family and for all people who support or are supported by the ADA.
