At their December 14, 2016 meeting, Diocesan Council approved the Alleluia Fund grant board’s recommendation to distribute $177,000 in grants to 33 organizations. This year’s grants bring the total funds distributed to our neighbors in need to over $1,000,000 since the fund’s origination in 2010.

Our 2016 Alleluia Fund partners offer practical, hands-on support to those most vulnerable in our diocese and internationally. In the coming year, our partners in northern New Jersey will provide hundreds of thousands of meals, offer shelter to thousands of our brothers and sisters in northern NJ, and support the education of hundreds of adults and children.

Our 2016 fundraising goal of $120,000 is within reach. Please support the work of our Alleluia Fund partners with a donation today. You can donate online or see the instructions for making a gift by check.
