2022 Annual Catholic Ministries Appeal

2022 Annual Catholic Ministries Appeal


Our Catholic Ministries Appeal

The 2022 Annual Catholic Ministries Appeal, which was formerly called Fruitful Harvest,

and will run until December 31 2022.


Our 2022 Goal: $371,929

  • The Annual Catholic Ministry Appeal provides another way to financially support the good works of our Local Church, which is made up of the parishes, schools, and facilities of the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana, as well as our Chancery offices and staff in Lafayette.

    When you donate to the Catholic Ministries Appeal, you are helping to pay for the formation of your seminarians, assisting with the health insurance and living expenses of your retired priests, and the college ministry programs at Ball State, Purdue, and Wabash College. Your gift supports the life-changing spiritual encounters with Christ at the Saint Joseph Retreat & Conference Center, the pastoral annulment proceedings at the Marriage Tribunal, and the creation and ministry of many programs. These things contribute to an effort to help every soul across our 24 counties to know Jesus Christ and to foster a deeper personal commitment to follow Him in His Church.

Thank you for all who have pledged and/or contributed to the 2022 Catholic Ministries Appeal already! No gift is too small or too large and every gift is important. Thank you for your generosity!

We truly are one church, one family. Being a parishioner means being a part of a parish, which is part of a diocese, which is part of the larger Catholic Church established by Christ 2000 years ago. We can accomplish together what no one parish can do alone.

The 2022 Catholic Ministers Appeal funds many ministries that allow us to proclaim the Gospel. Your support plays a critical role in funding ministries in the areas of evangelization, discipleship, worship, liturgy, sacramental preparation and a slew of programs that pour forth God’s grace, love and mercy.

Thank you for supporting our local parishes, diocese,

our college ministries, and future priests!
