2018 Joliet Diocesan Appeal

Please click here to watch a video about the Diocesan Appeal!

As Catholics, we are called to join together and care for our brothers and sisters most in need. Appropriately, the theme for the 2018 Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal (CMAA) is "Partners in Caring." Every gift is important to the success of the CMAA. Each pledge helps us reach our diocesan-wide goal of $8.2 million — and allows us to be Partners in Caring to so many through the thirty ministries our annual appeal supports. More information is available on the diocesan website, www.DioceseOfJoliet.org, or go to www.JolietDioceseAppeal.org.

Because of the CMAA, Catholic Charities shelters the homeless, feeds the hungry, and serves seniors and veterans in the Diocese of Joliet. Our parishes educate people of all ages in the faith, engage our teens and young adults, and ensure all ethnicities feel welcome at the table of the Lord. Catholic schools form students academically and spiritually, so our future leaders are both compassionate and faith-filled. The Vocations Office encourages vocations to the priesthood and religious life, and helps men who are discerning calls to the priesthood and the permanent diaconate. Seminarians receive the formation they need to serve as our future shepherds.

Your donation to the CMAA makes a difference in the seven counties of our Diocese. Literally, because of your partnership, the lives of thousands are touched each day. Thank you joining me in supporting the 2018 Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal! - Fr. James Dvorscak, pastor
