Archdiocesan Development Fund (ADF) Archbishop's Appeal



To Know Christ

and to

Make Him Known 


Goal:  $3.2 million dollars

As of November 30, 2016 total amount of gifts/pledges is $2,958,718.94 and total amount received is $2,642,604.59 from 9436 donors. 


The mission statement for this department is to "develop the life of the Archdiocese through Ministry." This is accomplished by the ADF financial support of the "Operations Budget" for the Archdiocese. All of these funds provide between 45 to 50 percent of that budget each year. By working under the direction of the Archbishop, the appeal process is developed and organized each year. The department creates documents that present and support the chosen theme with related materials used by each parish and mission for the participation of their parishioners. All data related to the collection and processing for the received funds and each donor is handled by department staff. Detailed updates of all parishes are sent to the pastor of each parish or mission. Accumulation updates are presented to everyone in the Archdiocese in the Sooner Catholic newspaper and the Archdiocesan website.
