Journey of Hearts & Hands

Journey of Hearts & Hands2013 Annual Appeal


In 2010, the Diocese instituted a Diocesan Appeal: Journey of Hearts & Hands: New Beginnings. In 2011 and 2012 we continued the work to support the Diocesan Pastoral Plan through the second and third Appeal campaigns, On Our Way and Forward With Courage, respectively. Again pastors led teams organized in every parish to bring the message of the Appeal to the people. In each year the goal of $750,000 was surpassed by the generosity of the People of God and over $1,000,000 was pledged each year. Parishes were able to raise considerable funds through the Appeal for their local priorities as well.

In 2013, the Appeal continues with a new theme, In Proportion to Our Blessings, to continue the good work of the previous years. The overall goal of $750,000 remains the same. For more information about division of funds raised, please click here.
