Why do we have a Diocesan Annual Appeal?

“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” 1 PETER 4:10

As a designated Mission Diocese, the Catholic Diocese of Lexington and our parishes raise money each year to provide for those we serve through missions and ministry throughout our 50-county geographic area. We walk alongside our brothers and sisters in mutual support and ask you to join us. All funds given to the Diocesan Annual Appeal are crucial to provide support for:

• Charitable outreach in the forms of food, clothing, counseling and emergency assistance in Eastern and Central Kentucky • Formation of a new generation of priests and permanent deacons • Sustaining parishes including parishes with missions in remote parts of the diocese • Educating students in our Catholic schools • Programs and ministries that are beyond the resources of any one individual parish that are shepherded by the Chancery office.
