Diocesan Ministry Appeal  Returning God's Gifts


The Annual Diocesan Ministry Appeal (DMA) is a diocesan-wide effort that supports the pastoral services and ministries of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Colorado Springs. DMA is an opportunity for all Catholics in our diocese, as a united diocesan family, to share in our call to be good stewards of the Church and its people. 

The Diocesan Ministry Appeal helps provide the funding necessary for these and many other important ministries and programs within our Diocese: 

KNOW GOD (Campus Ministry/Newman Center, Catholic Schools and Tuition Assistance, Evangelization, Safe Environment Training, Young Adult Ministry, Youth Ministry) 

LOVE GOD (Continuing Education for Clergy, Diaconate Formation, Pastoral Formation, Seminarian Formation, Training of Catechists) 

SERVE GOD (Capuchin Mall Ministry, Catholic Charities, Catholic School Support Grants, Hispanic Ministry, Parish Support Grants, Partners In Housing, Prison Ministry, Respect Life Ministry) 

Some of these ministries provide services beyond the scope of individual parishes and some exist for the sole purpose of assisting parishes in their own missions to teach, evangelize and serve. 

The appeal encourages participation from every Catholic household to uphold the mission of Jesus Christ in each parish for our local Church and allows us, as one faith community, to fulfill God's call to discipleship by sharing the Gospel message in word and deed, serving each other with mercy and love.
