Toolkit for Pastors and Parish Staff Members

Thank you for visiting our toolkit for the 2021 Annual Diocesan Appeal. This page is designed for those who will be leading and conducting the effort at their parishes. This can include pastors, parish business managers, bookkeepers, and parish secretaries. As the Appeal develops, this site will be updated with key templates and messages to help you talk with parishioners about the importance of the effort.

NEW RESOURCES FOR 2021

This year we will not be having a Parish Information Manual as in previous Appeals. Instead, for 10 weeks in January, February and March, we will be providing you with resource sheets that can assist you in sharing the message about the Appeal. Each week will include the following elements:

  • Sunday’s Gospel
  • Homily talking points that tie the Gospel into preparing ourselves to support the Appeal
  • Intercession
  • Message for a bulletin announcement
  • Message for a pulpit announcement
  • Social media post including image and copy
  • Some weeks will also have email copy for you to send from the pastor.

Please know that you may choose to use all, parts or none of these resources. It is completely up to you, but we strongly recommend taking advantage of these new resources as they will make the Appeal process easier and more effective.
