Why You Should Give

The Annual Catholic Appeal…

…is an opportunity for you to give a gift to support Catholic values you believe in. You can give with confidence knowing the ministries supported by the Annual Catholic Appeal provide assistance and guidance to our brothers and sisters in need. The Annual Catholic Appeal is a chance to join other parishioners in Brooklyn and Queens to work together, to do more good than one parish can do alone. We join together as strong, faith-filled Catholics, as members of the Diocese of Brooklyn, to profess our faith through acts of charity as Christ has called upon us to do.


Live in Faith – Give in Love

The Diocese of Brooklyn strives to be responsive to the needs of the 1.5 million Catholics and our larger community by bringing the Lord’s charity and love to our family of faith. The Annual Catholic Appeal provides us with an opportunity to step forward in our faith and radiate Christ’s light in our communities in Brooklyn and Queens by bringing the Gospel to the aged, the infirm, the disadvantaged, and those in need.

Each year, you are encouraged to be a beacon of hope to those less fortunate by taking a leadership role in giving and setting an example of Christian Stewardship for others to follow.

Much has been given to us and we possess hearts of compassion and a sincere concern for the mission and work of the Diocese. When we partner in charity, we join many other good stewards in our journey to Live in Faith – Give in Love. Know that your support of the Annual Catholic Appeal makes the breadth of our ministerial works possible in Brooklyn and Queens.

These Ministries Include:
• Vocations Support
• Faith Formation and Pastoral Life
• Catholic Schools Scholarship Assistance
• Catholic Charities
• Care for Retired Priests
• Catholic Migration Services
• Chaplaincies
• Parish Assistance

Your commitment to join together in faith and to share your gifts with one another is inspiring. To those who have supported the Annual Catholic Appeal in the past, a very gracious thank you from those whom you have helped and from those whose lives you have changed.

We are grateful for your partnership in the Lord’s work and invite you to join with your neighbors again this year in the mission Christ has given every one of us… to Live in Faith – Give in Love.
