Diocesan Support Appeal

The purpose of the Diocesan Support Appeal (DSA) is to help provide the annual funding necessary to carry out the mission of our diocese – namely to fulfill our call to “grow ever more perfectly into a community of praise, worship and witness, and to become a leaven of service and sign of peace through love in the Piedmont and Western North Carolina.”

  • The DSA provides support for more than 20 services that Catholic Charities offers throughout the diocese. The appeal also provides funding for Vocations, Education Ministries (providing over 30 different programs), Multicultural Ministries, Eucharistic Congress, and the Housing Ministry. Some of these ministries provide services beyond the scope of individual parishes and some exist for the sole purpose of assisting parishes in their own missions to teach, evangelize and serve.
  • The theme of the 2018 DSA is “We are Called”. This theme provides a strong message of stewardship, evangelization and vocation support. Each of us is called to share our gifts with those in need; we are called to bring the light of Christ to the lost and un-churched; we are also called to pray for and encourage vocations to the priesthood and religious life.
  • The goal for the 2018 DSA is $5,870,000, which is a 3.5% increase over the appeal in 2017. Each parish is assessed a portion of this goal.
