responding to Christ’s invitation

The Diocesan Services Fund (DSF) for the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston is the annual appeal that provides funding for essential ministries and programs that serve the religious, spiritual, and human needs of thousands of people from every parish.

Catechetical programs, hospital and prison ministries, programs for the aging and youth and many more are made possible by the annual DSF.  Christ calls us to reach those who are sick or in need, to bless them and serve them.  Thousands of people in the Archdiocese that are served by the 60 ministry programs supported by DSF need your compassion and generosity.

How to Donate

Each year, registered parishioners receive a letter from Archbishop Cardinal DiNardo, along with a personalized pledge card, inviting them to participate in the DSF.  Parishioners are asked to pray about their commitment, complete the pledge card and return it via mail in the special envelope provided or bring it to Mass. Or, you may donate online at Your generosity will allow our Catholic Community to continue these vital programs and services.
