Small Congregation Grants Available
If you are part of a small congregation that is trying to strengthen its ministry to young people, you may be eligible for a diocesan grant. Once again this year, parishes with an average Sunday attendance of 100 or less are invited to apply for funds to subsidize innovative start-up, one-time projects, programs, or events that will have an ongoing impact on ministry to children and/or youth.
These awards are designed to nurture these specific ministry areas and will not be offered to support general operating expenses. The size of each grant will depend upon the total number of grant proposals approved for funding.
All applications should be received by July 15, 2014. They will be reviewed by the Christian Formation Commission, and grant recipients will be announced September 1, 2014. While we hope that grants will continue to be offered beyond 2014, we can only guarantee their availability this year.
