The Impact of Your Generosity

Funds collected for the Bishop’s Appeal support an extraordinary range of services to parishes as well as the people of the Catholic Diocese of Dallas.

Pastoral Ministries

Your support of the diocesan annual program ensures that our pastoral ministries continue to provide for the spiritual and temporal needs of the faithful throughout our Diocesan Church. Catholic Charities provides essential human services including family assistance, elder enrichment, adoption, and food pantry programs to more than 10,000 families throughout the nine counties comprising the Diocese of Dallas.

Education of Seminarians

Education of Seminarians

Each year, the largest allocation made from the Bishop’s Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries is made directly in support of those men who are considering a life of ordained service to the Diocese of Dallas. Continued support of the diocesan annual campaign ensures that, through the generous ministry of our ordained clergy, members of our diocesan family will continue to engage our Lord in a dynamic faith community.

Catholic Education

The Bishop’s Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries ensures the vitality of the system of Catholic education throughout the Diocese of Dallas. It is within our Catholic schools that our greatest treasure — our children — are molded for a life of Christian leadership and service in the communities in which they will live.

Priestly and Diaconate Programs

Priestly & Diaconate Programs

Support for the ongoing formation of those who serve the Diocese of Dallas as ordained clergy, as well as providing support for those men discerning a life of service to the faithful as deacons, comprises a significant portion of the Bishop’s Annual Appeal. This support ensures that our clergy are able to meet the changing pastoral needs of our dynamic faith communities while ensuring that those called to the diaconate receive the best formation possible.

Pastoral Services

The Bishop’s Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries supports a wide array of Diocesan pastoral services, including Pastoral Juvenil Hispana, which addresses the unique needs of Latino youth by providing social, formation, and outreach programming. The annual program also sustains other programs including the Disabilities Ministry, Chaplaincy and Family Services, and Prison Ministry.
