PASTORAL SERVICES APPEAL PRAYER
Thank you for the many gifts you have graciously and freely given us.
Help us to share these abundant blessings as living witnesses of the Gospel message. Give us the grace to live as one family in the Diocese of Orange,
as together we build up a community of love, humility and charity.
The Pastoral Services Appeal (PSA) is an annual fundraising appeal of the Orange Catholic Foundation that raises funds on behalf of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Orange that are granted to the Diocese of Orange for financial support of selected diocesan pastoral ministries and services which serve thousands of people throughout Orange County. Each year, the Orange Catholic Foundation (OCF) conducts the annual PSA in collaboration with the Pastors and Administrators from all 62 parishes and centers of the Diocese of Orange.
Your participation helps those whose needs are the greatest – the poor, the vulnerable, and those on the margin of our society. Your gift demonstrates your commitment to Catholic education and the fight of the unborn; it supports those who are ill, imprisoned, and dying; and helps to strengthen struggling families and offers counseling to the grieving and the addicted, enabling thousands of individuals and families throughout the diocese make positive changes to improve their lives.
Your gift means a more vibrant Catholic community in the Diocese of Orange. Your support helps with faith formation and evangelization, Catholic education, formation of seminarians, priests, and deacons, and pastoral and sacramental life in our parishes.
Thank you for responding to God's call to share your blessings.
