2023 APPEAL: “For the Life of the World”

 

In every way, the work of our ministries emanates from the Eucharist. As Saint John Paul II said, “The Eucharist is the heart of the Church. Where Eucharistic life flourishes, there the life of the church will blossom.” The Eucharist is the true presence of Jesus Christ, it is the spiritual food that gives us strength to carry out His work each day and everything we do as Catholics emanates from that.

 Through the Catholic Ministries Appeal, we support those in need throughout the six counties of the Diocese of Camden.

Your gift to the Catholic Ministries Appeal Provides:

Social, Community and Health Care Services

Your generosity provides services through Catholic Charities offices in each county of South Jersey. VITALity’s Hospital Chaplaincy is able to provide spiritual and emotional support to patients, their families and staff through your donations. Together, we offer support to the weak, vulnerable, and disenfranchised.

Evangelization and Faith Formation

Lay leadership training, intercultural ministries, ministry with the deaf and persons with disabilities, marriage    enrichment, adult faith formation, liturgical catechesis and other evangelization efforts, along with your gifts,    kindle the fire of faith into a bright beacon for all to see.

Youth, Young Adult and Campus Ministries

Your donation enables programs like Summer in the City, Catholic Scouting, Theology on Tap, college campus ministries and Newman Centers, and support for a growing number of parish-based Youth Ministry programs and many more activities to build community and prepare our youth and young adults for the mission that God has chosen for them.

Vocations, Seminarian & Permanent Diaconate Formation, Care of Priests

Your support ensures that pastors and clergy continue to bring the light of Jesus into the world. Through prayers and support, we currently have seminarians studying for the priesthood in the Diocese of Camden.

Catholic Education – “Forming minds and hearts in grace”

Catholic schools are an integral part of the teaching mission of the Church.

Catholic schools build faith, develop leadership ability and provide academic excellence in a safe environment.

Your gift will help keep tuition affordable for families to send children to schools that will support Catholic values, develop character and provide academic excellence.

Incentives for Parish Initiatives

When our parish collects its goal amount, up to 10% is returned to our parish for our local charitable needs.  Additionally, 75% of all funds received above our parish goal will also be returned to our parish to foster our charitable and ministerial work.

We invite all parishioners to participate in this important effort.

During Catholic Ministries Appeal Weekend, please make your sacrificial gift to help continue the mission of the Church here in the Diocese of Camden!
