What is the Appeal?

The Bishop’s Annual Appeal is the vehicle the Diocese of Gallup has undertaken to raise the funds necessary to fulfill the mission of the Catholic Church in the Diocese.

In 2015, 94% of Bishop’s Appeal monies went toward funding various ministries – the remaining 6% was spent on production costs. With your generous help, $396,000 was raised for programs such as seminarian tuition, soup kitchens and emergency housing for families, and Catholic Schools scholarships for low-income students.

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.
