PSA AWARDS FOR 39 PARISHES

THE CHURCHES AND CENTERS EXCEED THEIR FUNDRAISING GOALS, SOME BY AS MUCH AS 250 PERCENT

By Staff     8/21/2015

GARDEN GROVE — A total of 39 parishes and center were honored July 31 by Bishop Kevin Vann for extraordinary early results in the 2015 Pastoral Services Appeal (PSA), which helped to raise the fundraising total for the diocese to more than 20 percent over the same time last year.

The parishes and centers were presented with certificates of achievement along with cash awards. Corpus Christi Church and Santa Clara de Asis Church earned special commendations for exceeding 250 percent of their parish goals in pledges by the end of February.

Bishop Vann emphasized the importance of the PSA as a vehicle for communicating the mission of the diocesan Church and its ministries that serve all parish and centers, as well as providing an opportunity for parishes to earn rebates for all funds raised over the parish goal.

The Pastoral Services Appeal (PSA) is an annual appeal of the Orange Catholic Foundation on behalf of the Diocese of Orange and runs from January through December each year. There is still time to make a gift to the 2015 PSA. Pledge envelopes can be found at your parish or you can make a gift online at www.orangecatholicfoundation.org/PSA.
