Applications clearly supporting needs outlined in the Pastoral Letter Meeting Christ, Living Christ will be given priority.
Your project should fall under one of these categories:
1. Catholic School Subsidy
2. Retreats & Missions
3. Faith Formation
4. Marriage Support,
5. Catechesis & Formation
The Committee prefers to review grant applications for Catechesis & Evangelization in the Fall Grant Cycle, after the Diocesan
catechesis leadership position has been filled.
Deadlines for applications:
Spring Award (May): April 15, 2012
Fall Award (November): October 15, 2012
CCF Grant awards will be merit-based rather than need-based.
A report of how CCF funds were used must be made by April 15, 2013 for the May award or October 15, 2013 for the November
award. Failure to report in a timely manner will result in funding being unavailable to the parish in the next year. Please use the
Report Form to make your report.*
