Hope Appeal campaign returns; be as generous as possible

The Hope Appeal is the annual giving campaign of the Diocese of Syracuse.

Every year, the programs and services supported by the Hope Appeal touch countless lives in every city, town and rural area in our diocese.

Our parish is part of the diocese and has a responsibility to help those in need as a major tenet of our faith. Look for a mailing from the diocese, and there are brochures in church. Please consider giving as much as you can to help us reach our assessment of about $37,000.

When the goal of the Hope Appeal is achieved, we ensure that these programs will receive the funding that is needed. Please take a moment to view this year’s Hope Appeal video to see how your gift makes a difference in the lives of so many.

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Syracuse includes 196,897 Catholics in 116 parishes residing in seven counties of central and south-central New York. The seven counties are Broome, Chenango, Cortland, Madison, Oneida, Onondaga and Oswego.
