Catholic Services Appeal

Why Have an Annual Appeal?

The needs in both the Diocese of Gary and in the Church universal require a response from every Catholic. These needs cannot be effectively fulfilled by one individual or even by a single parish. Since 1987, the Catholic Services Appeal has been extremely successful in addressing those needs because of the generous stewardship of the people of the Diocese of Gary. The dedication and enthusiastic support of the pastors and associate pastors of many parishes have been key factors in the continued success of the CSA.
