Every gift and every prayer helps.


Everyone can participate according to their abilities. Thoughtful prayer and discernment can help each household consider what is appropriate for them to pledge.


Each parish benefits from Diocesan ministries. Through support of our clergy, religious education, and charitable works, all Catholics are positively impacted by ministries of the Diocese. The goal for each parish is 100% participation through prayers and offerings.

"The call of Jesus pushes each of us to never stop at the surface of things, especially when we are dealing with a person. We are called to look beyond, to focus on the heart to see how much generosity everyone is capable. No one can be excluded from the mercy of God; everyone knows the way to access it and the Church is the house that welcomes all and refuses no one."

- Pope Francis
