Information and Announcements About The Diocese

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) annual Catholic Home Missions Appeal will be held in parishes across the country over the weekend of April 28-29.  The Catholic Home Missions (CHM) grants assist dioceses and eparchies that would otherwise struggle due to difficult geography, impoverished populations, and limited resources. CHM funding supports essential pastoral programs, including religious education and youth ministry, priestly and religious formation, prison ministry, and lay ministry training.
