DIOCESE OF CHARLOTTE 2023 DIOCESAN SUPPORT APPEAL
“To Serve is to Love” is the theme of the 2023 Diocesan Support Appeal. We are called to follow Christ’s example to serve one another with love and compassion. Your contribution to the DSA helps fund the social service, educational, multicultural and vocational ministries of the diocese.
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 funding for the ministerial arm of the diocese.
The DSA provides support for more than 20 services that Catholic Charities of Charlotte offers throughout the diocese. The appeal also provides funding for the Housing Ministry, Education Ministries (providing over 30 different services), Multicultural Ministries, Eucharistic Congress, and Vocations. 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 mission to teach, evangelize and serve.
