2023 Annual Catholic Appeal • Apelo Anual Católico
The theme for the 2023 Catholic Appeal, the 82nd in the Diocese of Fall River, is “Do This in Memory of Me.” Since 1942, the Catholic Appeal has helped people in all phases of life – from children, to youth, to parents, to the elderly. Your support sustains the numerous agencies, programs, and ministries of the Diocese of Fall River providing food and shelter, educating children and adults, and meeting the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of thousands. We encourage you to support the Appeal as generously as you can. You can make a one-time gift or a pledge with convenient payments throughout the year. You can give by mail, use a contribution card located in church, or make your gift or pledge online at: www.GiveFRDiocese.org. The campaign runs from May 1 - June 30, 2023.
Once again, the Diocese has an incentive program, providing a monetary award for parishes who meet a specific fundraising goal, including our own - to raise 5% more than the average of the last three years. The average of the contributions from Santo Christo Parish from 2020-2022 was $30,671.00. With the goal of a 5% increase, our parish goal for 2023 is $32,204.55. If we surpass our parish goal, Santo Christo Parish will receive 50¢ on every dollar raised over that amount. Any money raised would go to our Church Renovation Fund. Last year, in 2022, we raised $33,494.00.
