“Praise the Lord, who heals the brokenhearted.”

— Psalm 147

The annual Diocese of Orange Pastoral Services Appeal, or PSA, is one important way we share Christ’s light in our community and inspire others to do the same. Each year, the PSA provides essential funding to support formation, education, and outreach across our Diocese. As Disciples of Christ, our calling is simple yet profound: “Love one another as I have loved you” (John 13:34). Each of us at Christ Cathedral Parish is invited to love others in our own unique way. When we answer this call to loving service, we discover interior joy and bring the hope of God’s love to the world. This appeal also gives us a wonderful opportunity to raise funds to support our parish community. Our diocesan goal this year is $166,000. Every dollar raised above this diocesan goal will be returned to us to help financially support the ministries and operating expenses of the parish, especially youth and young adult ministries.

Your support of the 2024 PSA will help:

  • Provide retirement support to 51 retired diocesan priests.
  • Provide formation for 23 seminarians and ongoing education for our priests and deacons.
  • Provide support services to more than 615,000 families and individuals through Catholic Charities.
  • Provide education and ministerial training for our faith formation lay ministers.
  • Provide education and learning to support over 17,000 students in our diocesan Catholic Schools.

As we continue our faith journey together, please prayerfully discern your support to this appeal. Pledge envelopes have been distributed and extras can be attained from the Cathedral or the Parish Office. You can return your envelope by mail, place it in the Sunday collection basket, or drop it off at the parish office.
