FaithWorks gathers together a portion of the “first fruits” from parishes throughout the Diocese to support outreach ministry to those in need. Every parish is encouraged to set a FaithWorks Campaign goal of approximately 5% of its total offertory. Each parish is able to retain 15% of the amount it raises through its FaithWorks parish appeal to support its own outreach ministries.
Parishes contribute nearly 60% of all the funds raised annually on behalf of FaithWorks Ministry Partners.
FaithWorks Speakers Bureau One of the most important components of a successful FaithWorks campaign is arranging to have a speaker come to your parish or congregation. A gifted, motivating speaker can really demonstrate the essence of the FaithWorks theme: how we care for one another.

FaithWorks Materials Request Form In an effort to become more mindful of our responsibility to care for all of God’s creation, beginning in 2015 all FaithWorks Campaign materials will be made available online as downloadable pdfs. If your parish would like to continue to receive printed FaithWorks brochures, posters, bulletin covers, placemats and bookmarks, please download and complete this form and the appropriate quantities will be sent to you in advance of your parish campaign for next year.
FaithWorks Offertory Envelopes
Parishes that encourage monthly donations to FaithWorks consistently rank among the highest in proportional giving. This is because it is easier for most of us to give a small amount each month than to write a big cheque once a year. Even a modest contribution of just $5 a month adds up to $60 a year!
FaithWorks pays the cost of printing and inserting FaithWorks envelopes (one per month) in the offertory boxed sets ordered from your regular envelope provider.
