The 2019 Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) gets underway in many parishes of our diocese during Lent. Parishes are launching the appeal either at the start of the Lenten season – on the weekend of March 9-10 – or in late April, just after Easter Sunday. (en Español)

Bishop Walkowiak’s letter to parishioners
(English | Español)

The Catholic Services Appeal is the annual diocesan collection which supports the programs and ministries of our diocese. As a diocese of over 44,000 Catholic households, our financial gifts are joined together through the CSA in support of the following programs and ministries so that we may continue the ministry of Jesus: Priestly Vocations, Catholic School Education, Cultural Ministries, Catholic Charities West Michigan, Catechesis and Communication. Every financial gift to the CSA helps sustain programs that would not otherwise be possible through one individual or parish “So Faith May Flourish.” Thank you for your generosity!
