The DPAA is an opportunity to support the work of the Church throughout the fourteen counties of our Diocese. This annual campaign raises funds for spiritual, educational, and charitable outreach ministries. Gifts to the Annual Appeal change lives forever – from providing the basics of life to spreading the Good News of the Gospel. Through DPAA ministries, our faith is proclaimed every day as we help feed the hungry, provide shelter to the homeless, counsel those in despair, offer job training to the unemployed, educate our youth, proclaim the sacredness of life at all stages and care for all who come to the Church seeking help. In addition, individual parish programs and projects are annually funded through the DPAA rebate program.
The DPAA campaign begins in April. Pledge cards are mailed to each household and are also distributed at Mass for the first few weeks of the campaign. Gifts may be pledged over a ten-month period or one-time donation. The campaign is administered by the Diocesan Stewardship office with support from a parish team.
