The 2017 Diocesan Support Appeal theme is “Your every act should be done with love.” 1Cor 16:14
The purpose of the Diocesan Support Appeal (DSA) is to help provide the annual funding necessary to carry out the mission of our diocese – namely to fulfill our call to “grow ever more perfectly into a community of praise, worship and witness, and to become a leaven of service and sign of peace through love in the Piedmont and Western North Carolina.” The DSA provides funding for the ministerial arm of the diocese.
Our 2017 parish assessment is ($136,095).
Please be generous to the Diocesan Support Appeal. Your contribution to the Diocesan Support Appeal is a way to act with love for our sisters and brothers throughout the diocese and to continue the saving work begun by Jesus. Next week during Mass, you may complete a pledge envelope or go to www.charlottediocese.org/dsa to make a gift online.
The DSA provides support for more than 20 services that Catholic Charities of Charlotte offers throughout the diocese. The appeal also provides funding for Vocations, Education Ministries (providing over 30 different programs), Multicultural Ministries, Eucharistic Congress, and the Housing Ministry. Some of these ministries provide services beyond the scope of individual parishes and some exist for the sole purpose of assisting parishes in their own missions to teach, evangelize and serve.
If you would like to help us meet our assessment, pledge envelopes remain in the pews and can be returned to the Parish Office or you can make an electronic donation at www.charlottediocese.org/dsa or at www.stpeterscatholic.org -online transactions.
