All 115 parishes and missions of the diocese participate in the Catholic Appeal of South Carolina. Each corner of South Carolina benefits from the funds contributed to the Catholic Appeal, and a successful effort is defined by each parish asking their parishioners to consider participating.

It is through the Appeal that many of the ministries in our communities, as well as Christ’s servants such as our seminarians and retired priests, can be supported by the diocese.

Without the Catholic Appeal, thousands of families who rely on support from these instrumental ministries would could go without food and basic hygiene services, the future generations of Catholics may lose their connection to the Church, and those who are discerning the priesthood or religious life may turn away from God’s calling.
