Check it out! New APA Materials for Parishes

February 23, 2017 – How long has it been since you have visited the 2017 Materials resource page? If it has been more than one week, you are missing out! The Office of Stewardship and Development is hard at work to post new materials to assist parishes in spreading the word about the 2017 Annual Pastoral Appeal.

These are just some of the items added in the last week:


  • Leadership Resource Manual (Spanish) – contains materials to help prepare for in-pew education and solicitation including samples of pulpit announcements, bulletin announcements, calendar activities and prayers of the faithful. Fully translated by the Hispanic Ministry Office!
  • Ministry Snapshot – Office of Life Ministry – Yolanda’s Story
  • 2017 Video – Spanish version
  • Graphics including the 2017 logo, a “click here to donate” graphic parishes can utilize on their parish websites, and the candle graphic for use in bulletins
