Diocese launches Grateful for God’s Providence Capital Campaign
All parishes in the Diocese of Providence are joining together for the Grateful for God’s Providence Capital Campaign. As we approach the 150th anniversary of our diocese, this historic campaign will ensure that we are able to continue our mission for years to come.
The campaign seeks to raise $50 million over the next four years to prepare our faith community for the future. At its heart, this campaign is about supporting our future by focusing on our parishes, priests, Catholic school tuition assistance, Sts. Peter and Paul Cathedral, and Catholic charities and social services.
Every parish will retain 40% of each dollar raised in its parish’s campaign effort to be used for its own local needs. In the coming weeks our Campaign Leadership Team will be providing more information about the campaign and details about each of its purposes. Their goal is to make sure that every parishioner knows what this campaign is about and how we are being called to participate.
