Foundation Kicks Off the Bishop's Ministry Appeal

January 10, 2017

The Catholic Foundation will launch the 2017 Bishop’s Ministry Appeal at diocesan parishes on February 4 & 5 and 11 & 12. Progress, the Bishop's annual appeal, provides everyone with an opportunity to invest in the works of our diocesan ministries, putting our faith into action. Progress supports 17 ministries in 10 counties. The work of these ministries is only possible with your generous donations. 

We invite 12,000 donors to help raise $2.3 Million. Money raised through the Bishop's Ministry Appeal represents nearly 40% of all operating funds supporting the pastoral, spiritual, educational and human service programs that benefit thousands of individuals throughout the 10 counties of the Diocese of El Paso. When you make your donation you do something significant for seminarians, our religious formation and diaconate programs, Catholic Campus Ministry, and vocations, just to name a few. Even a small gift can have a large impact.  

"Rejoice in hope, endure in affliction, persevere in prayer." - Romans 12:12
