What does my gift to CSA support?

Your contribution to the Catholic Services Appeal (CSA), whether in the form of a one-time gift or a pledge fulfilled over the coming year, supports the following programs and ministries so that we may continue the teaching, healing ministry of Jesus in our diocese and beyond:

  • Catholic Schools - This year, Bishop Walkowiak wrote parishioners of the diocese to announce an important change to the annual Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) over the next two years. The change involves providing annual funding to continue the successful Bishop’s Catholic Schools Initiative (BCSI) and implement the "Catholic Schools: Bridging Faith & Future" strategic plan.
