Bishop's Annual Appeal

The Bishop’s Annual Appeal is a yearly effort that enables our diocese to fund a variety of vital programs and ministries throughout eastern North Carolina. We are stronger together with the BAA!  

Our parish's goal is $69,214 toward the over $7.3 million diocesan goal, where:

  • 28% strengthens the vulnerable: Catholic Charities, Office of Child and Youth Protection; Legal Counsel
  • 26% strengthens our faith: Office of Divine Worship, including liturgy & music; Tribunal; Catholic Center buildings and grounds; African Ancestry and Native American ministires; parish assistance; Office of Evangelization & Discipleship, including marriage & family 
  • 19% strengthens our youth: Office of Catholic Schools; Faith Formation; Catholic Schools Grants; Campus Ministry
  • 15% strengthens vocations: Office of Vocations including candidates & seminarians; continuing education for clergy; Office of the Permanent Diaconate; priestly & religious life
  • 12% strengthens His presence: Office of Communications; NC Catholics magazine; Information Technology

Thank you for your participation in meeting this year's goal. Our in-pew weekends are February 18-19 and February 25-26 or you can donate online at

    • Lent with Brother Francis (daily videos for children, available in both English and Spanish)
    • Reflexiones de Cuaresma (daily, in Spanish)

  • Greener Lent: this program is inspired by the encyclical Laudato Si.
