WE DID IT!
Together we raised more than $1 million for important ministries and services in the Diocese of Victoria.

Thank you.

Our Annual Appeal funds ministries and services throughout the Diocese of Victoria.

With your help, our parishes are ready, willing and able to serve others, from supporting refugees to improving buildings and properties. We assist smaller parish and mission communities in practical and necessary ways, ‘keeping the lights on’ so we can welcome the faithful and help those in need.

Annual Appeal Logo.pngWe provide religious education, catechism, and workshops for children, youth and adults, so people can deepen their faith and grow closer to God. We accompany the elderly, sick and dying. We provide pension support to clergy who have devoted their lives in service for God, and for us. We are building safer, improved space in our schools, helping our children thrive and learn in a faith-based environment.

With your help, we can do all this, and more. Your support is essential to our mission, and we are so grateful for your contribution. 

At a Glance

  • 95¢ of each dollar you contribute directly assists Diocesan ministries, services, and parish projects.
  • The average gift to the Appeal in 2017 was $371.
  • For every dollar you donated, 63¢ funded ministries and services, 32¢ funded parish projects, and 5¢ covered the administrative costs of running the Appeal.
  • Consider donating the value of one hour of your wage per week. If we all did this, we could do even more amazing things in our Diocese!
