Thanks to the generosity and commitment of many faithful parishioners throughout the Diocese of Orange, the Pastoral Services Appeal is poised to reach great heights in 2016.

As we come together as a family of God to celebrate our 40th anniversary as a Diocese, we reflect with joy on the faith and charity of those who have supported the life of the Church for all these years. The 38th annual Pastoral Services Appeal brings us together as members of the diocesan church and our own parishes to support our faith through ministries and services that sustain and supplement our work as the Church of Orange.

“I would like to thank everybody for their generosity,” said Bishop Vann. “Gifts to the PSA represent an investment in the future of our diocese. The PSA helps us to be outward focused, for instance through our work with Catholic Charities and Catholic Detention Ministry. We think of the history of our Diocese and we recall the generosity of all of our people who have supported seminarian education and the many other PSA-funded ministries over all these many years. We continue that great gift of thanking God for his generosity by giving back to him.”

The mission of the PSA is to reinforce the mission of each parish and center while reaching out to those in the wider community by providing support, training, formation, education and outreach through the ministries and services funded through the PSA. Each and every individual gift to the PSA contributes toward this goal and makes a difference.

As we begin a new campaign year, please prayerfully discern how you can make a difference by making a sacrificial gift to the PSA through your own parish. Your gift will multiply and come back to you through spiritual growth opportunities, leadership training, giving to the wider community and supporting your own parish’s vital projects.

Gifts to the PSA can be made online at orangecatholicfoundation.org on the PSA tab or by completing a pledge envelope and turning it in at your parish. Full PSA ministry descriptions can be reviewed at orangecatholicfoundation.org/psa.

Each parish has an assigned goal for the PSA to raise their fair share of the PSA- funded ministries and services. All gifts received over the assigned goal amount are rebated back to the parishes on a monthly basis.
