  • teaching life skills to those seeking to rise above poverty;
  • and operating schools in downtown Indianapolis for children of families who cannot otherwise afford a Catholic education.

54% to help priests, seminarians and deacons by:

  • subsidizing high seminarian education costs;
  • supporting formation programs for future deacons;
  • caring for retired archdiocesan priests;
  • and offering retreats and sabbaticals to current archdiocesan priests.

30% for education and catechesis of children and adults by:

  • helping make Catholic campus ministry available at colleges and universities in the archdiocese;
  • supporting teachers and students in the archdiocese’s 67 Catholic schools;
