In what ways does the United Catholic Appeal provide financial support to proclaiming the word of God?
Young Adult Ministry
Supports ministry programs like the Bishop’s Bash, Theology on Tap, 40 Days for Life and the mission of creating a greater culture of vocation and Catholic identity in and through the lives of young adult Catholics.
Ministry on College Campuses
Supports the programs and activities on 12 college campuses that connect Catholic college students with their faith and each other during this transformational time of life. This support helps close the funding gap to operate small group sessions, service opportunities, and other events sponsored by college campus ministries.
Helps respond to the needs of immigrants through activities that are respectful to the culture and enriching to their lives, and promotes increased awareness of ethnic strengths and diversity within the archdiocese through parish services and other intercultural
approaches to ethnic and cultural diversity.
Pro-Life & Family Life Ministry
Supports educational, pastoral and advocacy programs for families through marriage preparation, natural family planning, substance abuse, Birthline, and bereavement programs; promotes human dignity from conception to natural death through pro-life services and prayer activities, and provides support for ministries focused on spiritual health and recovery from divorce.
Supports the youth ministry staff and 65 full-time, part-time and volunteer youth ministers in professional development and the implementation of mission projects, youth conferences like the National Catholic Youth Conference (NCYC), pilgrimages, programs supporting Special Religious Development (SPRED), A Promise to Keep, and other spiritual enrichment experiences that serve nearly 3,000 youth annually.
Office of Catholic Education
Provides guidance, support, training, and processes for curriculum development, school accreditation and improvement, special education, institutional advancement, school safety, and leadership development for the more than 2,000 Catholic teachers and administrators entrusted with educating 24,000 students in 69 schools throughout the archdiocese.
