Faithful Giving . . .
Following The Little Way of St. Therese- Our Co-Patroness
Thanks to the generosity of our donors who supported us during the challenges faced this year, the Catholic Foundation was 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 for catechetical programs, faith formation and worship. In addition, $14,000 was granted to the four Catholic Schools in our diocese to strengthen enrollment through tuition assistance.
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 will help homeless shelters, food banks, and medical clinics for the poor, and they are all made possible by the Msgr. Delaney Humanitarian Fund.
