Using the Annual Catholic Appeal as a Parish Fundraiser

At St. Nicholas of Tolentine in Jamaica, Queens, we learned much of their success is driven by the involvement of their ACA parish team. Another compelling part of the Annual Catholic Appeal is utilizing the “over-goal” feature of the program to raise money for a special project at the parish.

The Parish Plan

Throughout our Diocese, countless individuals have made a lasting impact on the life of the Church and its ability to share the faith with the next generation. It all starts with a plan.

Our Role as Stewards

“It seems like the Church is always asking for money,” this has been said by many parishioners and even by some priests, for as long as the Church has solicited funds. The mission of the Church is to continue God’s work of bringing about a community of faith, hope and charity.

A Response in Faith

On behalf of the people who are served throughout our Diocese in Brooklyn and Queens, we begin the 2019 Annual Catholic Appeal by thanking those who generously responded to the 2018 Annual Catholic Appeal.

Thank You, Rita!

Ensuring the Future of the Diocese

My dear brothers and sisters in the Lord, On behalf of the people who are served throughout our Diocese in Brooklyn and Queens, we begin the 2017 Annual Catholic Appeal, “Live in Faith – Give in Love,” by thanking those who generously responded to the 2016 Annual Catholic Appeal and the Generations of Faith capital campaign.

A Chance to Share the Gospel

My dear brothers and sisters in the Lord, On behalf of everyone served throughout our Diocese in Brooklyn and Queens, we begin the 2016 Annual Catholic Appeal, “Share The Joy of the Gospel,” by thanking those who so generously responded to last year’s Catholic Appeal. If not for the commitment of our parishioners to this annual initiative, the basic services and ministries offered by the Diocese would not be possible.
