The Charity and Stewardship Appeal, formerly known as D.D.P., is the annual appeal of the Diocese of Lincoln to help provide for the needs of the diocese. The funds from the appeal support numerous ministries and outreach programs in southern Nebraska including Catholic Social Services, Family Life/Natural Family Planning, St. Gianna’s Homes, Catholic Schools and C.C.D. programs.
Every parish receives back all funds collected from the parish that are in excess of their established goal! In addition, we receive a large portion of our funds back as a ‘rebate’ to help offset the cost of our school operations. The annual campaign takes place through April and May each year.
