Annual Catholic Appeal

We need your help. Our Annual Catholic Appeal’s network of services has had to be flexible in this unprecedented time, and we anticipate we will need to maintain this response to meet the growing demand for support. Your partnership is critical as we navigate this situation.

Our mission remains the same, but COVID-19 has had a significant impact on our annual needs.

  • We have served over 100,000 meals across our Diocese in response to the 200% increase in demand.
  • Over 120 parishes offer daily live-stream coverage of Mass and 144 parishes communicate daily with parishioners using social media.
  • Our educators were required to quickly implement innovative distance learning  They remain committed to forming the hearts and minds of our Catholic youth.
  • We have 30 hospital chaplains currently deployed across our boroughs consoling the sick and most vulnerable.
  • And of course, our devoted clergy, who remain at the frontlines of this pandemic, continue to enrich our lives spiritually and partner with our network of support services to address the growing local needs across our Diocese.

As a committed parishioner, friend, and Catholic, we need your support to uphold our mission. We are grateful to the 108 people who have made a generous commitment to the 2020 Annual Catholic Appeal. This unwavering support has allowed us to reach promised of $44,769.00 of our $65,989.00 goal.  We are only $21,220.00 away from our goal.

If you have not made a pledge this year and are able to do so, I ask that you join me in demonstrating that WE ARE THE CHURCH, TOGETHER by considering a gift to the Annual Catholic Appeal.

Yours in Christ,
Father Tom Leach
