Lenten Almsgiving

Remember the Annual Diocesan Appeal in Your Lenten Almsgiving

Please join the 10,566 families that have pledged more than $2.7 million to the Annual Diocesan Appeal this year. Because of their generosity, the Diocese of Fort Worth will be able to financially support our seminarians, retired and infirm priests, rural and needy parishes, correctional ministry, marriage and family life ministry, Catholic schools, Campus ministry programs, permanent deacons and those served by Catholic Charities. Lent is the ideal time to make your sacrificial gift for this year’s appeal. All funds stay within our diocese.
