DSF 2023 – God is the Strength of My Heart


A Message from Cardinal DiNardo

Dear friends in Christ,

One of the most frequent questions we receive is “why do we have the Diocesan Services Fund?” The answer is simple – because we are Catholic and we are called to serve one another.

The Diocesan Services Fund allows the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston to support 64 ministries that no one parish can conduct on its own. Through your support, together we can more fully live out the Gospel message of Jesus Christ by serving the poor, the sick, the homeless, and the forgotten; we can educate future generations of faithful and flourishing Catholics through our schools; we can prepare our seminarians for the priesthood and support our clergy as they ministry to the 1.7 million Catholics in the Archdiocese; and we can help to nurture holy families that bring the love of God into each of our homes and our communities.

God, who is truly the strength of our hearts, calls us through His son Jesus to love and serve joyfully. The Diocesan Services Fund allows us, as Catholic Christians, to joyfully fulfill that call and to show a true love of neighbor through service and prayer.

I invite you to join me in supporting the Diocesan Services Fund and helping our local Church continue to live out our faith in an authentic and inspiring way.
