Thousands of people across the diocese benefit because of the DSA­ funded ministries. Among those served are:
* 46,200 children and adults through programs assisted by the Faith
Formation Office
* 7,000 grade school and high school students in Catholic Schools
* 6,700 teenagers through Youth Ministry
* 3,500 Catholic college students through Campus Ministry programs
* 19,000+ clients of Catholic Charities Diocese of Charlotte, served in the following office locations:
Charlotte Winston-Salem Asheville Murphy
* 100,000+ minority parishioners through multicultural ministries
* 120 permanent deacons through the Permanent Diaconate program
* 28 seminarians currently in formation for the diocese

To help support these ministries, each parish or mission has been assessed a specific amount. Those that surpass their assessed targets receive rebates of 100 percent of the amount received over their target. If a parish falls short of the target, then they must pay the shortfall from the parish operating budget. I ask you to pray with a heart full of gratitude for all the gifts you have been given and share those gifts accordingly. In two weeks you will see the envelopes for DSA in the pews and we ask you to use them to give whatever is possible for you. Thank you for your generosity. Be assured of my constant prayers for you and your loved ones.
Father Ambrose
