As of December 1st, a total of $12,260,840 has been raised in cash and pledges, marking an increase of more than $640,000 over the previous year. Of the 92 parishes and missions in the diocese, 74 have raised at least 90% of their goal, and over half of all parishes met or exceeded their goal.
“This is a remarkable achievement that only faith could make possible,” noted Bishop John Noonan. “Through their generous commitments, our families have shown that Our Catholic Appeal is worthy of support and that our diocesan ministries have a direct and lasting influence on countless lives.”
Gifts to Our Catholic Appeal provide annual operating support for a wide variety of diocesan ministries that serve people, parishes and Catholic schools throughout Central Florida. With funds from Our Catholic Appeal, the diocese is able to nurture vocations, promote lifelong faith formation, and care for the hungry and homeless.
