Bishop's Annual Appeal
Your Dollars at Work
The Bishop’s Annual Appeal (BAA) is our opportunity to support the work of the Catholic Church in Eastern North Carolina. With support going to more than 30 pastoral, educational and human service programs within the Diocese of Raleigh, the goal this year is to raise $6,374,554.
We as Catholics believe in the sanctity of human life, the dignity of the individual, and the central role of the family in life and society, and so we support these programs, which serve all of God’s people, without regard to race, religion, age, handicap or financial status.
With God’s grace and through the BAA, your gifts of time, talent and treasure have given dignity, hope and support to tens of thousands of people who need it right here in the Diocese of Raleigh. And this good work continues right now.
One of the ministries supported by BAA is Catholic Charities. Last year more than 60,500 persons in our area received help from Catholic Charities.
Catholic Charities can leverage the monies from BAA to make an even bigger impact on the lives of those who need help. Just over one-fifth of BAA's funds go to Catholic Charities, providing one-third of its budget.
Please take a moment to read the following mini-stories, which show your BAA dollars are hard at work. Thank you for your generous gifts in support of the BAA.
The BAA supports 30+ Diocesan ministries, including:
