Last year, the Archbishop's Annual Appeal provided $430,000 in tuition assistance, enabling students to attend Catholic schools and helping to lessen the financial burden for families in need.
PRIDE (Pupils Receiving Inclusive Diversified Education) Program
The Appeal supports PRIDE, an innovative K-8 Archdiocesan school program designed to meet the needs of students who learn differently. Small group sizes and modified curriculum for Language Arts and Math are hallmarks of the program.
Priests have a critical mission of bringing people to Jesus and Jesus to people. They are spiritual fathers to thousands of Catholics. They preach the Gospel and offer the sacrifice of the Mass. In short, priests are living witnesses of Christ in the world - men of strong character who stand out in our secular culture. Funds from the Appeal provide substantial support for Seminarian formation.
