BAA Annual Appeal Update: Your participation in the BAA matters

Originally Appeared in : 9813-6/21/18

The 2018 Bishop’s Annual Appeal kicked off with a bang in February and has been moving forward towards the goal of $2.7 million. With the theme Missionary Disciples, and the first goal increase in five years, the BAA supports dozens of ministries, programs and mission parishes in South Georgia. Ministries such as vocations, faith formation and Catholic Charities rely on the funds raised to support your parish and your brothers and sisters in faith throughout the Diocese of Savannah.


As you can see from the Progress Report (click on the photo at the right to read a PDF), we have come so far in just a short time. We have already raised $1,895,382.75 with an additional $357,908.87 in pledges to bring us to a total of 70 percent of our goal. This is a tremendous accomplishment for just a few short months but at only 23 percent participation throughout the entire diocese, your help is still needed.  


If you have not had the opportunity to view Bishop Hartmayer’s BAA video inviting us all to be a Missionary Disciple in our diocese, I urge you to visit our website at, watch the video and make a prayerful consideration to the BAA. Your gift is need and all amounts are welcome. Please send in your donation by mail or make a gift online. All who make a donation online will be sent a Georgia Martyrs prayer card with their thank you letter. We cannot do it without you. 


Maureen Coates is the Director of Stewardship and Development for the Diocese of Savannah.
