PASTORAL SERVICES APPEAL
The annual Diocese of Orange Pastoral Services Appeal, or PSA, is one important way we share Christ’s light in our community and inspire others to do the same. Each year, the PSA provides essential funding to support formation, education, and outreach across our Diocese. As Disciples of Christ, our calling is simple yet profound: “Love one another as I have loved you (John 13:34)”. Each of us at Christ Cathedral Parish is invited to love others in our own unique way. When we answer this call to loving service, we discover interior joy and bring the hope of God’s love to the world. This appeal also gives us a wonderful opportunity to raise funds to support our parish community. Our diocesan goal this year is $166,000. Every dollar raised above this diocesan goal will be returned to us to help financially support the ministries and operating expenses of the parish, especially youth and young adult ministries.
Your support of the PSA will also:
- Provide retirement support to 48 retired diocesan priests.
- Provide formation for 19 seminarians and ongoing education for our priests and deacons.
- Provide support services to more than 615,000 families through Catholic Charities.
- Provide education and ministerial training for our faith formation lay ministers.
- Provide education and learning to support over 17,000 families through our Catholic Schools.
In the coming weeks we will journey together to prayerfully discern our support to this appeal. Registered parishioners will be receiving mailings from Bishop Kevin Vann and Rev. Christopher Smith and included will be a pledge envelope. You can return your envelope by mail, place IT in the Sunday collection basket or drop it off at the parish office. If you wish to make your pledge online go to: https://www.rcbo.org/psa-give-now/#donate-form. You can make a single gift or make a reoccurring pledge. Your pledge, in whatever amount you can manage, is very appreciated.
