Our Catholic Appeal is an annual opportunity for every member of our faith family to share in the pastoral work of Christ by funding the important programs and ministries of the Diocese of Orlando.

This year’s theme for Our Catholic Appeal- Teaching and Living the Light of Christ - recalls our Lord’s own words:

You are the light of the world. Your light must shine before others,
that they may see your good deeds and glorify our heavenly Father

Our Catholic Appeal helps us to fulfill this mission by funding diocesan-wide ministries that bring forth a greater awareness of God’s presence in the world.

How your gift to Our Catholic Appeal helps others

Gifts to Our Catholic Appeal fund the annual operating costs of our diocesan Chancery and provide critical support for outreach programs such as Catholic Charities of Central Florida.  The life-changing programs and ministries that are made possible through Our Catholic Appeal benefit our entire Central Florida community and help our diocese to:

  • feed the hungry and comfort the sick
  • educate young people in an environment where Christ is loved and embraced
  • assist families to grow in their love for God and one another
  • train parish catechists and certify new lay ecclesial ministers
  • defend human life and dignity
  • offer resources for lifelong faith formation
  • nurture those who have answered God’s call to the priesthood or religious life

For more information on the great work that is made possible through a gift to Our Catholic Appeal, please view our 2014 brochure and our Frequently Asked Questions.
