2023 Catholic Services Appeal

csa header

The CSA unites the 94 parishes in our diocese in a common effort to share the Catholic faith. This year’s CSA goal is $4,235,000 which helps to support the projects, ministries and departments of the diocese and cannot be used for any other purpose. The below list of resources can assist parishes to run their CSA appeals.

Please contact the Catholic Foundation if you have any needs or questions regarding the CSA.
