Area Ministry Grants

Area Ministry Grants are granted by the Area Councils. The purpose of the grants are to address four needs:

  • enhancing the ministry and mission of congregations in all parts of the Diocese;
  • assisting parishes in developing financial self-sufficiency and reducing their need for assistance;
  • encouraging parishes to address the root causes of financial shortfalls and, working with the Area Bishop to explore creative alternatives;
  • improving the accountability of parishes receiving assistance.

Grants are considered by the Area Bishop and Area Council.
