Our Catholic Appeal is an annual opportunity for every member of our faith family to support the life-changing work of the Diocese of Orlando. Gifts to Our Catholic Appeal fund a wide variety of ministries that serve our nine counties in ways that no parish could accomplish alone.
HOW YOUR GIFT TO OUR CATHOLIC APPEAL HELPS OTHERS
Your gifts to Our Catholic Appeal are the sole source of funding for 28 ministries that benefit every parish, mission and school in our diocese. In addition, your gifts provide critical support for outreach programs such as Catholic Charities of Central Florida, Hope CommUnity Center, and our schools in the Diocese of San Juan de la Maguana in the Dominican Republic.
Because of your generosity, we are able to:
- support 35 seminarians in their formation
- provide food, medical care and housing to those in need
- organize spiritual enrichment opportunities for both the lay community and our clergy
- train parish catechists and certify new lay ecclesial ministers
- evangelize through diocesan-wide media
- meet with elected officials to discuss issues that affect all people, Catholic and non-Catholic alike
Envelopes are available in the Church pews on Sundays if you would like the opportunity to donate to the important programs and ministries supported by the Annual Appeal.
