Launched: The 2024 Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries!
The 2024 Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries has launched! This year we dive into the theme, Faith in Action: Transforming Lives, Impacting Communities.
Did you know that in 2023, $7.5 million was raised and nearly $1.5 million of that was was for parish ministry?
This resulted in 23% of funds given to the appeal being rebated back to parishes across Maryland!
