The Office of Child, Adolescent and Adult Protection greatly appreciates the generosity of The Catholic Foundation, the donors and all who contribute to the Annual Catholic Appeal.
We are excited to partner with Circle of Grace to provide a current, timely, personal safety training for over 27,000 children and youth (k-12). The Catholic Foundation has generously provided $15,000 to assist with making this program available at no costs to locations, parishes and schools.

Community Outreach Caring for the Poor and VulnerableThe Appeal helps a vibrant network of dedicated Catholic social service programs that provide countless good works every day - each time a senior receives the care, love, and compassion they deserve, a family has a breakthrough, a marginalized person rebuilds a life of dignity, and a child finds safety and hope.

Seminarian and Clergy SupportThe Annual Catholic Appeal provides critical support to offset the rising cost of education for seminarians currently in formation to serve as priests in our diocese. Also funded are the programs that provide continuing education for clergy, deaconate formation and lay ministers.
Yours in Jesus through Mary,
Fr. Tom Quirk
