2017 Annual Bishop’s Appeal

                          Providing Help…Creating Hope


Every day people come to the doors of our local agencies looking for help and searching for hope.  How truly blessed we are to be able to serve them.

This past year, Catholic Charities served 35,381 people who came to us hungry, in need of utility or rental assistance, or seeking help with prescription medication, as well as other basic needs. 

Today we are thankful for the 14,117 parish families who have committed to help those in need right  here in our diocese. To date, we have pledges totaling 81% of our 4 million dollar goal.  To learn more about how the Bishop’s Appeal supports your neighbors and friends, visit our page.

As we welcome in the new life that comes with the spring, let us take time to remember and pray for those who are struggling to find a little hope and a bit of joy.

No prayer goes unheard, and no gift is too small to make a difference.  Make your mark with a gift today Thank you again for your support and God bless you.
