The Catholic Services Appeal (CSA) is the annual fundraising campaign for the 13-county Diocese of Erie.

The CSA reminds us that we are all part of the same Catholic family and that the work of the diocese is the work of the church.

The CSA helps the Diocese of Erie to fulfill its mission to evangelize, educate, serve, proclaim the Word and celebrate the sacraments.  No funds donated to the CSA have been or will be used to defray expenses related to the sexual abuse scandal.


What is our goal?  

Our 2019 Parish goal is $15,000.00 at St. Joseph Parish and $500,000.00 at St. Michael Parish.


What happens if we raise more than our goal?
100 percent of the funds collected over a our goal are retained in our parish for our individual needs.  This year we are
  • Refinishing the doors of the church at St. Joseph parish
  • Installing a new roof at St. Michael parish
