2020 Annual Report
Even through difficulties and challenges, our more than 24,000 generous donors provided more than $10 million in support of our 50+ diocesan ministries and services through the 2020 Annual Pastoral Appeal. Gifts were also made to support special projects through the Forward in Faith Campaign, and Bishop Gregory Parkes launched our new Mater Dei Giving Society.
Just as each person must be accountable, the Church must also be accountable to its donors for the gifts provided and show how those gifts impact lives for Christ. Through the good works of our diocesan Church, we assist and serve 3 million people across our five-county diocese. 
You are invited to visit to view the online version of the 2020 Annual Report, download a printable version, see impact numbers, see short ministry videos and learn more about how the Diocese of St. Petersburg is Courageously Living the Gospel thanks to our donors. To request a print version of the report, please email your request to
