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 our diocese offers. 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 our Church. Our 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 the Bible’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.


Dear Friends in Christ,

As we continue to work through the reorganization of the Diocese of Duluth, I take great comfort in the words of St. Paul: “What will separate us from the love of Christ?  Will anguish, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or the sword? ... No, in all these things we conquer overwhelmingly through him who loved us.” (Romans 8:35-37)  Thanks to your generosity the saving work of Jesus Christ continues in our beloved diocese.  The love of Jesus Christ conquers all.

This year's UCA highlights the diocesan staff.  These are the people behind the scenes who support the work of our parishes and assist me in the operation of the diocese.  They are incredibly gifted, faith-filled people, some full-time, some part-time, who foster the work of the Lord.  I am delighted to show you their smiling faces!

Your prayers and support of the United Catholic Appeal make it possible for the ministries and offices of the Diocese of Duluth to carry on the mission of Jesus Christ to reach the peripheries of our society as Pope Francis has said.  Thank you for your gift!

God bless you,

Bishop Paul D. Sirba
