The initiative plays a critical role in deepening the faith of our youth and ensuring the future of our parish communities in Brooklyn and Queens. Help us sustain and grow our efforts to evangelize the youth of our Diocese!

For over 150 years, the Diocese of Brooklyn has embraced and celebrated the diversity of its communities, families and faithful. Generations of Catholics have been raised in our tight-knit neighborhoods, celebrating their Catholic faith at our many parishes, and building our church for the future. We have been richly blessed. With those blessings comes the responsibility to share with future generations all that we have received. To date $128 million has been raised in pledges and $57 million has been collected.
