Opportunity to

Support Diocesan Ministries

As part of a "Vision for Our Future," Bishop Michael launched the Distinguished Diocesan Benefactors [DDB] program in January 2011.  He called upon the faithful of the diocese to voluntarily support three initiatives through their financial gifts. These initiatives are:

Support for Mission Parishes

Support for Seminarians

Support for Existing Parishes

Thanks to the sacrificial generosity of DDBs from throughout the diocese and beyond, over $500,000 was contributed during the first four years (2011-2014) of the program!

Last year a record-breaking total of $157,000 was received. As a result, vital ministries have received much-needed support; the work of the Church is being funded as never before!

There are visible “fruits” of our labors and efforts as mission parishes are being established and supported, seminarians are receiving scholarships, and struggling parishes are being revitalized.

See the DDB "Honor Roll" of contributors HERE!
