The theme of the 2018 Diocesan Support Appeal is, ‘We Are Called‘ to share our love with others because God first loves us.
The purpose of the Diocesan Support Appeal (DSA) is to help provide the annual funding necessary to carry out the mission of our diocese – namely to fulfill our call to “grow ever more perfectly into a community of praise, worship and witness, and to become a leaven of service and sign of peace through love in the Piedmont and Western North Carolina.” The DSA provides funding for the ministerial arm of the diocese.
The DSA provides support for more than 20 services that Catholic Charities of Charlotte offers throughout the diocese. The appeal also provides funding for the Housing Ministry, Education Ministries (providing over 30 different services), Multicultural Ministries, Eucharistic Congress, and Vocations. Some of these ministries provide services beyond the scope of individual parishes and some exist for the sole purpose of assisting parishes in their own mission to teach, evangelize and serve.
This year our assessment is $29,870. Parishes that exceed their goal in donations receive a rebate of 100% of the additional funds. Parishes that fall short of their goal in donations have the shortfall taken out of their operating budgets. Please prayerfully consider making a donation to the DSA to help us reach and even surpass our assessment goal!
