How is Your BAA Gift Put to Work?

Find out what the BAA funded last year and where you gift will go this year.

The 2018 Bishop’s Annual Appeal funds 30 ministries in the areas of charity, evangelization and worship. Jesus taught us to go out and spread the Good News. The BAA funds all or portions of programs and ministries that attempt to evangelize across Eastern North Carolina. One hundred years ago, there were fewer than 25,000 Catholics in the entire state.

Today, we continue to grow and number nearly 500,000 in Eastern North Carolina alone. In addition to providing grants to assist new missions forming in the more rural areas of the Diocese, funds are also crucial to the tens of thousands in faith formation programs in each of our parishes as well as the 29 Diocesan schools and early childhood centers attended by nearly thousands of young men and women.

BAA funding supports the NC Catholic magazine, which is mailed to each registered parishioner. It helps fund retreat centers and Marriage classes. Overall, the BAA will provide over $7 million in the upcoming year to help those in physical and spiritual need. You are invited to learn more through the parish or online at
