What is the Annual Diocesan Appeal?
The Annual Diocesan Appeal is a dynamic opportunity for all of the faithful in the Diocese of Fort Worth to contribute for the common good and impact lives beyond the scope of any individual parish.
Its mission is to witness to God’s grace in our lives by together sharing the Gospel message of faith, hope and charity with those most in need of attention through knowing and doing all that we are called to as disciples of Christ.
Appeal materials will be mailed to every Catholic household in the Diocese of Fort Worth. Pledge materials will also be available here at St. Philip the Apostle. Completed pledge forms may be mailed directly to the Diocese or dropped off in our parish collection.
Thank you for prayerfully considering your gift to the appeal.
How Your Gift Is Used
Through the power of Christ’s love we are called to respond to the needs of others. As Catholics, we embrace the gifts we have and joys of life we experience through the eyes of faith. In gratitude, we generously share these gifts. Your gift to the 2017 Annual Diocesan Appeal provides funds to ministries and programs in these four categories.
Gratitude and Support for the Clergy – to support the healthy and holy formation and education of men for the priesthood and permanent diaconate.
Hope and Healing for the Poor – to aid the disadvantaged, the disabled and those who are most in need of God’s healing grace.
Outreach to Rural and Needy Parishes and Schools
Love and Strengthening for Families – to bind us closer to Christ through our love and respect for one another in families committed to proclaiming the Gospel.
Marriage and Family Life
Faith and Formation for Future Generations – to empower our children to grow in their Catholic faith in preparation for a life of Christian leadership and service.
