SUPPORT A PARISH


In the Diocese of Orlando, we are deeply committed to the future of our parishes and missions, for here the work of Christ is experienced most directly and intimately – through prayer, service to others, and the celebration of the Eucharist. 

For parish life to blossom and thrive, we must embrace our call to serve as caretakers of the house of God. Your generous gifts on behalf of a parish or mission can help fund new construction, strengthen ministries, expand outreach, and create a welcoming presence for future parishioners who will one day join you at the Lord’s Table.  

In addition to regular offertory giving, there are many opportunities to make a special gift on behalf of your parish. Unlike offertory, many of these opportunities do not require you to write a check or make a gift from your current income.

Gifts for Today
 

  • Give now to Our Catholic Appeal. Gifts to Our Catholic Appeal fund diocesan-wide programs and ministries that enrich all of our parishes  and missions.
     
  • Give now to support the Alive in Christ Campaign. The majority of campaign proceeds will remain at the local level to meet the needs of our parishes.  If you have already made a pledge to Alive in Christ, we’ve made it easy to fulfill your pledge commitment online.
     
  • Use appreciated stock, bonds, or mutual funds to make a gift to Our Catholic Appealor Alive in Christ.
     
  • Ask your employer whether a matching gifts program is available that will match your gift to Our Catholic Appeal or Alive in Christ. 
     

Gifts for Tomorrow
 

  • Donate a life insurance policy that you no longer need.  Just name Bishop John Noonan as the owner and sole beneficiary of the policy and designate the parish that you wish to support.
     
  • Consider a charitable gift annuity that will benefit your parish and provide you with regular income.
     
  • Name the Church as the beneficiary of your retirement assets, such as an IRA, and designate the gift to your parish.
     
  • Remember your parish in your will.  It only takes a few simple sentences to provide lasting support for the ministries that mean the most to you. Click here for bequest language.

How lovely your dwelling place, O Lord of hosts.
