Many options are available to support the people and ministries in the Catholic Diocese of Dallas. Here are three different opportunities to give, with explanations of the missions of the different organizations:
Bishop’s Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries is the fundraising arm of the Catholic Diocese of Dallas with an overall goal of ensuring that funds are raised to support vital diocese ministries and their programs. The Appeal is dedicated to supporting Catholic Education, social service ministries, Pastoral Ministries, and the formation of priests and deacons. Over 35,000 families pledged over $8 million dollars in 2012 to support the Appeal’s mission.

The Catholic Diocese of Dallas was founded in 1890, and will celebrate its 125th anniversary in 2015. As we count down to this historic milestone, Bishop Kevin Farrell and community lay leaders have met with our parishes, people and organizations, and have commissioned studies to determine our most important needs for today and the future. As a result, a $125 million Capital Campaign has been established called OUR FAITH… OUR FUTURE.
This Campaign will raise the funds necessary to effectively address the vital needs of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Dallas and to establish an achievable plan for the future of our parishes, schools, vocations and seminary activities; the restoration of the landmark Cathedral Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe; and to expand Catholic Charities.
