Bishop Kopacz has an audio message to share on the importance of the CSA

Bishop Joseph Kopacz wants to share this message about the 2022 Catholic Service Appeal to those around the diocese. Be our Hope Rising!

There are many services the Diocese provides to our parishes, schools, and to all Catholics that would be difficult for even the most prosperous parishes to undertake on their own.

This includes support for educating seminarians, Catholic Charities, campus ministry, mission parishes and schools, youth ministry, formational ministries, priest retirement and clergy assistance, evangelizing and communications. When the goal of the Catholic Service Appeal is achieved, we insure that these programs, so important to our Catholic faith, will receive the funding that is needed.
