Parishes

The center of our faith communities emanates from our parishes.  They are the front lines of evangelization and sharing our faith with others.

We realize that many people spend more time with their parish family than their own family at times.  Giving through offertory ensures the ongoing support and operational funding needed to minister to the people in your surrounding communities.  Supporting the Annual Pastoral Appeal helps us all to support the combined efforts of all throughout our diocese, making it more cost-effective to provide larger diocesan-wide services across our five counties. 

There are a variety of ways that you can make a direct gift to assist your parish today, from gifts of cash to charitable gift annuities to distributions from your IRA. Contact the Catholic Foundation at 727-374-0220 for more information on these options.

You can also consider a gift that would assist your parish both now and in perpetuity, or a gift which will come after your passing. 

The Catholic Foundation looks to partner with you and your parish to ensure the long-term financial viability through a variety of tools.  Some examples are below, yet we invite you to contact us by phone to discuss your personal goals for giving to your parish.
