Journey of Hearts & Hands
In 2010, the Diocese embarked on a first ever Diocesan Appeal, A Journey of Hearts & Hands: New Beginnings to support the identified priorities of the Diocesan Pastoral Plan. Pastors lead teams organized in every parish to bring the message of the Appeal to the people. Through the Grace of God and the overwhelming generosity of parishes island-wide the $750,000 goal was surpassed with pledges totalling over $1.2 million. Parishes were able to raise considerable funds through the Apeal for their local priorities as well.
After the wonderful generosity of parishioners and clergy across our Diocese in 2010, we now engage in this year’s Journey of Hearts and Hands with our 2011 theme, On Our Way. This year’s Diocesan goal remains at $750,000 and we all can be justly proud and grateful for last year’s response of over $1.2 million pledged for the 2010 Appeal! This year, the funds generated by the Appeal will again be applied to Diocesan and Parish ministries, pastoral services and capital needs throughout our community as well as assisting our Catholic Schools.
