Bishop's Annual Appeal

The 2020 Bishop’s Annual Appeal funds more than 40 ministries in the areas of charity, evangelization, and worship.

In addition to the ongoing formation of the Priests and Deacons currently serving in our Diocese, the Bishop’s Annual Appeal funds nearly the entire amount needed to educate our future Priests. There are currently 24 Seminarians in Priestly formation for the Diocese.

The Bishop’s Annual Appeal also funds six college Campus Ministry Centers. College campuses have an average Catholic population of 28%, but receive no funding from non-Catholic institutions. Without the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, there would be no opportunity for our college age youth to practice their religion or learn about the Catholic faith for the first time. This support is incredibly important because participation at these Catholic Campus Ministries is at an all-time high.

Overall, the Bishop’s Annual Appeal will provide over $7 million in the upcoming year to help those in physical and spiritual need.

Thank you for your participation in meeting this year's goal.
