CDA funds mean ‘Love That Gives Hope’ – From The Catholic Sun
The annual diocesan Charity and Development Appeal, which kicks off in parishes and missions the weekend of Feb. 11-12, is getting personal.
This year the videos feature actual clients of CDA-supported organizations.
“Through our videos we get to meet a few of the many people whose lives have been impacted thanks to the CDA,” said Carrie Aranda, CDA director. “It is through their stories that we get to see the impact that the CDA has on not only our communities, but on individual lives.”
The theme for this year’s appeal is “Love that Gives Hope,” with Timothy and JoAnn Holland, parishioners at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Tempe, returning as co-chairs.
The 2016 appeal received donations totaling $9.4 million that supported more than 70 charitable, educational and spiritual organizations. The goal for this year is $8.8 million.
