Giving . . . the little way- inspired by the example of St. Therese
Due in large part to the generosity of our donors who continue to offer support during the challenges faced this year, the Catholic Foundation was recently able to distribute nearly $100,000 in grant awards to 35 Catholic parishes and organization throughout the diocese. Nearly $86,000 was awarded in parish, mission and program assistance to support a wide range of catechetical programs and to provide assistance in the areas of faith formation and worship. In addition, $14,000 was granted to the four Catholic Schools in our diocese to support catholic education enrollment. The Catholic Foundation awards these grants with faith and confidence that the funds will positively impact parishes, missions and other Catholic organizations as they serve the people of the Diocese of Pueblo. Grant funding will help provide such things as:
• New Religious Education Materials
• Campus Ministry Opportunities
• Audio-Visual Equipment
• Lay Ministry Training
• Vacation Bible School
• Youth Conference Participation
• High School Newman Club Activities
• Adult Faith Formation Support
• Parish and Formation Retreats
• Sacramental Preparation
In addition to providing Parish, Mission and Program assistance, the Catholic Foundation awarded $39,500 in Humanitarian Grants. These grants were made possible by the Msgr. Delaney Humanitarian Fund. Please visit this link for a full listing of grants.
Thank you, our donors! Without your contributions the Catholic Foundation would not be able to fulfill its mission; with your help we are able to support those who seek to strengthen and enrich their faith.
