My dear friends in Christ,

We bring our greatest gifts to the Lord for the common good. That is one of the most important meanings of our faith. Christ is our role model for giving love to 

others, helping others and making sacrifices for others. I ask you today to consider a gift to DSF.

DSF serves the common good throughout the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston. The more than 60 programs covered by this fund require all of us to consider the needs of others. Whether it is the elderly, sick, incarcerated or poor, the Church has a duty to offer the compassion and healing power of Christ Jesus.

What is the Diocesan Services Fund (DSF)?
The Diocesan Services Fund (DSF) helps all of us fulfill Christ’s mission here on earth by supporting those programs and services that cannot be accomplished by one parish alone. More than 60 programs receive all or part of their funding from DSF and all funds are spent within Archdiocesan boundaries. The broad areas of ministry that receive DSF support include: Catholic education of children and adults; pastoral ministries for the sick, the poor and the incarcerated; the formation and education of church leadership; social service programs such as San José Clinic, St. Dominic Village and Catholic Charities.
