OUR CATHOLIC APPEAL - 2014: 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. Our Catholic Appeal helps us to fulfill this mission "Teaching & Living the Light of Christ" by funding diocesan-wide ministries that bring forth a greater awareness of God's presence in the world. Gifts to Our Catholic Appeal fund the annual operating costs of our diocesan Chancery & 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 & comfort the sick; educate young people in an environment where Christ is loved & 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.
