Diocesan Development Fund

2019 DDF Annual Appeal

This year, the DDF goal for St. Theresa Church is $58,100. As of June 24, 197 parishioners and visitors have pledged or donated $44,037, a wonderful response. 

Every year St. Theresa Church--together with every church in the Diocese of San Bernardino--launches our DDF Appeal, usually the last week of January. So, to have reached over 75% of our goal in 6 months is very gratifying, especially when many of our families are finding this year financially challenging. It is also important to remember that every dollar that the Diocese receives in excess of our goal, $58100, is returned to us for repairs and maintenance of our own church. For the past three years we have been blessed with a return each year of around $20,000. 

To learn more about the DDF we invite you to view Bishop Barne's video in which he shares with us his vision for the Mission of the Diocesan Development Fund and explains how our contributions are used.
