Vibrant Faith Formation

Faith Formation.
The Future of Our Faith.

For many students, like Marcella, a senior at Boston University, college is a pivotal time when young adults take ownership of decisions that often define the rest of their lives. And that’s why our campus ministry programs make it a top priority to bring young adults closer to Christ on more than 25 college campuses in the Boston area. Graduates of these programs are becoming young leaders in our parishes and communities, and many are entering formation for the priesthood or religious life.

Your gift to the Catholic Appeal supports more than 190 Faith Formation programs for children, college students, and adults.

Stronger Catholic Schools

Go Further With Faith.

From an early age, Catholic school students like those at Our Lady’s Academy in Waltham learn that a great education means more than solving complex problems or getting high test scores. Education goes further when anchored in faith. From the professional development training for teachers and school leaders to greater student engagement across disciplines, the Catholic Schools Office works to ensure an outstanding academic experience for all students, one that is grounded in faith.

Your gift to the Catholic Appeal supports the work of the Catholic Schools Office in developing great teachers, administrators, and programs that help students go further with faith.

Thriving Parishes

Stronger Parish Communities

Powerful Resources.
For Every Parish.

Everyone has a role to play in ensuring parishes can meet the needs of their parishioners. Patrice Fitzpatrick, a pastoral assistant at St. Patrick in Stoneham, hopes to join the more than 50 certified pastoral associates trained by the Archdiocese to help support the needs of her parish community. The bereavement program Patrice leads is just one of the many responsibilities she has in providing support to her pastor and parish. From training pastoral associates and hospital chaplains, to offering operational support the Archdiocese provides important resources for more than 280 parish communities.

Your support of the Catholic Appeal offers important training and program support for our parishes to fully live out their mission to bring people of all ages closer to Christ.
