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.
