The Roman Catholic Diocese of Lubbock, Texas, is home to a vibrant community of nearly 137,000 self-proclaimed Catholics. Established in 1983, the diocese created the Diocesan Catholic Appeal to support and invite parishioners to contribute to the ministerial needs of the larger Lubbock Church. This fund-raising campaign, known as the Appeal Catholic Offering for Ministries (ACOM), has a significant impact on the life of faith of families, individuals and communities in the 25 counties of the diocese. The ACOM is based on many of the best practices of the UCA. It is an opportunity for parishioners to support their local church and its ministries.
The funds raised through this campaign are used to support a variety of ministries, including religious education, youth ministry, evangelization, social justice and outreach programs. It also provides financial assistance to parishes in need, helping them pay for essential services such as utilities, repairs and maintenance. Additionally, it helps parishes provide pastoral care and other services to their members. The ACOM is an important part of the life of faith in the Diocese of Lubbock. By contributing to this fund-raising campaign, parishioners can help ensure that their local church is able to provide essential services and programs that benefit their community.
This is an opportunity for parishioners to show their commitment to their faith and make a difference in their local church.
