Your every act should be done with love :: Diocesan Support Appeal 2017

The purpose of the Diocesan Support Appeal (DSA) is to help provide the annual funding necessary to carry out the mission of our diocese – namely to fulfill our call to “grow ever more perfectly into a community of praise, worship and witness, and to become a leaven of service and sign of peace through love in the Piedmont and Western North Carolina.” The DSA provides funding for the ministerial arm of the diocese.

The DSA provides support for more than 20 services that Catholic Charities of Charlotte offers throughout the diocese. The appeal also provides funding for the Housing Ministry, Education Ministries (providing over 30 different services), Multicultural Ministries, Eucharistic Congress, and Vocations. Some of these ministries provide services beyond the scope of individual parishes and some exist for the sole purpose of assisting parishes in their own mission to teach, evangelize and serve.

The theme of the 2017 DSA is “Your every act should be done with love” 1Cor 16:14. This theme reminds us that our actions speak loudly, and the message they give should be loving It also beautifully reminds us of the mission of the ministries supported by the DSA, and what they do for thousands of our brothers and sisters across western North Carolina.
