GMD-brochure cover


When we experience the love and joy that comes with knowing and loving Jesus, we want to proclaim the difference Christ has made in our life and help bring others to Him.

Eucharistic Revival

The Eucharistic Revival is an invitation to grow in our love and reverence for the Holy Eucharist and allow ourelves to be transformed by Him


As disciples of Christ, we have a lifelong calling to learn from and seek a deeper relationship with Jesus. This equips us with wisdom adn truth to accompany others in their faith journey.


Vocation is our individual path to holiness and growing hte Kingdom. Following our vocation requires allowing ourselves to be led by the Holy Spirit to love and follow Jesus.

We can do miracles through generosity

~Pope Francis

How Your Gift Is Used

Every one of our parishes is the beneficiary of the Annual Diocesan Appeal!  The Diocese is the sum total of all the parishes.  Thousands upon thousands of Catholics in the Diocese are directly or indirectly served by Diocesan programs and services.

In addition, any money that is paid over the parish's goal is returned to the parish for its own programs and services as extraordinary income.
