Parish Rebates

When you give to the Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries, one-quarter to one-half of your gift, depending on whether your parish has reached its Appeal goal, is rebated back to your parish. Traditionally, parishes use rebates to complete long desired capital projects, to assist a poorer parish, or to enhance their celebrations of Mass, Sacraments, and other liturgical services through music ministry or technological upgrades. This past year, some parishes chose to use their rebates to offset a shortfall in Offertory giving due the current health crisis, or to build endowment to help safeguard their future. Pastors and their leadership teams are afforded full discretion on how they choose to use their Appeal rebates.
