The Catholic Services Appeal is an annual diocesan campaign to generate funds to accomplish the mission of the church in the world, the diocese, and the parish.

The Catholic Services Appeal has provided support locally for Catholic education, youth ministry, spiritual life, Catholic Charities and the ministries to the Hispanic and AfricanAmerican
communities. It supports national collections such as the retirement for women religious, Catholic University of America and the Catholic Communications Campaign. The CSA also supports Pope John Paul II’s charitable works.

Each parish is assessed a certain goal. All monies over and above the goal are returned to the parish for whatever use that is chosen.
