PARISHES: $22.5 million

“Faith is strengthened when it is given to others!” (Redemptoris Missio, 2)

The parish is where the faithful within the Diocese of Trenton grow and mature in their faith. A primary objective of this campaign is to ensure that our parishes have the necessary resources to teach, prepare, and nurture the next generation of Catholics. This campaign will provide each parish with the opportunity to address many of their needs that could otherwise go unmet, such as capital improvements, deferred maintenance, debt reduction or local endowment funds to support long‐term needs.

As part of this campaign, a minimum of 30%, or $22.5 million, of the funds collected at the parish level will remain at the individual parish, and 70% of the funds will go toward the following areas outlined in this document. Once a parish has reached its goal, the allocation of funds will reverse and the parish will receive 70% of all additional monies collected within the parish.
