ANNUAL DIOCESAN APPEAL

The Annual Diocesan Appeal is a dynamic opportunity for all of the faithful in the Diocese of Fort Worth to impact lives beyond the scope of any individual parish. Its mission is to witness to God’s grace in our lives by together sharing the Gospel message of faith, hope and charity with those most in need of attention through knowing and doing all that we are called to as Disciples of Christ.

Our St. Patrick Cathedral Goal is $122,000.  Thank you for prayerfully considering your gift to this Appeal.
