The Parish Development Grants

These grants support Diocesan parishes in becoming healthier, more faithful, and effective faith communities with a maximum grant of $15,000 per year. Parish development involves focusing on the parish's unique purpose, embracing its ecclesial tradition, self-renewal, and sustainability, and fostering a transparent, open, and hopeful culture. Examples of supported projects include attracting new attendees through additional liturgies, enhancing formation programs, and developing sustainable pilot initiatives. Notably, the grants don't fund capital projects or long-term initiatives, but they encourage self-sustainability and have a maximum term of three years with a decreasing funding request each year.
