Just as Jesus labored in the Father’s vineyard by teaching and healing, we too are called to participate in God’s work by serving one another. Through our diocesan ministries we partner with parishes to form compassionate lay ministers and knowledgeable catechists; offer family enrichment opportunities; support lifelong faith formation; reach out to college students; and bring the love of Christ to the hungry, the homeless, and the vulnerable.
There are many easy and effective ways to further the good work of our diocesan ministries through your gifts of treasure. You can make an annual gift that provides vital operating support for all of our diocesan ministries, or you may wish to leave a legacy gift in support of a specific ministry that has touched your life. Below are some important ministries to consider as you plan your legacy.
