United Catholic Appeal

United Catholic Appeal


Thank You for Supporting the Mission of Jesus Christ!

The United Catholic Appeal is our yearly stewardship and development effort to support many of the important educational, spiritual, and service ministries in The Diocese of Duluth. All Catholics throughout the diocese are asked to support the appeal with their prayers and financial resources. As Catholics, we know that each one of us is called to support the ministries of the Church. All gifts make it possible for our ten-county diocese to provide vital services to the spiritual and physical well being of men, women, and children in Northeastern Minnesota. Our contributions are also our response to Jesus Christ's call to stewardship – to be generous with what we have received from God, who is the true owner. Donations to the UCA are made through your local parish or may be sent directly to The Diocese of Duluth.


Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

 “Give a reason for your hope” (1 Peter 3:15). It is with great hope that I write to you to ask for your support of the 2019 United Catholic Appeal (UCA).  You are a cause for hope.  Year after year you generously support the mission of the Diocese of Duluth by your contribution to UCA.  Without your generous assistance our Diocese would not be able to make Jesus Christ known and loved through the ministries it sustains.

 As we hopefully emerge from bankruptcy soon, we trust in God’s providence and ongoing healing.  Your generosity allows us to support our mission to the poor, our youth and young adults, Catholic schools, religious education, Native Americans, married couples, our seminarians, deacons and priests, and more.  We provide expertise to support your parishes in matters financial, and with respect to human relations and canon law.  We cannot provide hope in Jesus Christ for those who need it and do the work we do without you!

Please continue to be generous in your support of the UCA.  Thank you and God bless you!

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Reverend Paul D. Sirba
Bishop of Duluth
