Project Advance is crucial to the Church’s mission of providing services that benefit all Catholics and countless others in our Archdiocese. Our annual appeal lets us not only provide for our local Church but also strengthen our parishes. It helps each parish meet its own unique needs and it ensures that the sacrifices of past generations are built upon for the benefit of the future.
To date an astounding $90 million has been returned to parishes so they can meet the growing needs they have for their buildings and programs.
Our Archdiocesan goal of $3 million remains the same as last year. Our core needs continue to be the renovation of our secondary schools, the founding of new parishes, the care of the needy and marginalized through Catholic Charities, evangelization and programs for enriching the faith of our youth and young adults.
