ARCHDIOCESE GIVING CAMPAIGNS
TOGETHER IN MISSION This year, we celebrate our unity during the Together in Mission 2022 "As One We Believe" Annual Appeal and unite as a family of faith to raise vital funds for struggling parishes and schools during our 250th Year Jubliee of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Your tremendous generosity will continue to provide essential resources that enrich parish life, strengthen families and communities, and inspire and educate future generations at 64 parishes and 75 schools. Thank you for your support as we gather together during the "As One We Believe" Annual Appeal. Give today: https://togetherinmission.org/
CALLED TO RENEW The primary goals of the campaign are to help parishes fulfill their mission to serve others and to share the good news of Jesus Christ. Fifty percent of every dollar raised at each parish will be returned to the parish for its own needs. Once the goal is reached, the parish will receive 100% of each dollar collected above goal. This is a tremendous opportunity for parishes to expand and strengthen their ministries and programs. Parishes will also receive additional funds for their respective deferred maintenance needs.
