My DioErie: Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) Materials

The 2018 Catholic Services Appeal

Picture of the 2018 CSA edition of Faith Magazine
We as Catholics belong to the wider
church, not just our own parish, but in
communion with our brothers and
sisters in neighboring parishes.

We belong
to our local faith community,
our diocese,
and the worldwide Roman
Catholic Church.


The Catholic Services Appeal is something that appeals to our sense of the common good by providing each of us an opportunity to unite and reach out to those in need that are in our parishes, cities and throughout the Diocese of Erie. Your gift helps in many ways, these are just a few:
  • Parish projects
  • Catholic Charities' nine affiliate agencies and multiple programs: More than 43,000 men, women and children of all faiths received services last year.
  • Support and advice for administrators and teachers of the 36 Catholic schools
  • Scholarships for Catholic school students – CSA provided more than $450,000 in scholarships for needy students
  • Continuing education opportunities for catechists
  • Rural ministries
The Catholic Services Appeal has ministered and provided services to thousands of individuals and families throughout our Northwestern and Central Pennsylvania communities. The needs continue and in some cases are growing. As they do, so does our need to ask you for support. Your pledge to the Catholic Services Appeal will help us continue to preach, to teach, and to serve. We encourage you to read the special CSA issue of Faith magazine (which will be linked here soon) and other information presented on this site. Then we hope you see how vital your CSA gift is to our church; how important it is to many people. Please prayerfully consider your response to the Catholic Services Appeal.
