Thanks to the generosity of people from every parish in the eight counties of the Diocese of Cleveland, Rooted in Faith - Forward in Hope is transforming the landscape of parishes and securing the Church’s future in Northeast Ohio.
The impact of this historic campaign, which was initiated in 2010 and is the largest fundraising campaign ever conducted by the Diocese of Cleveland, can be seen in capital improvements to schools and parishes, greater Diocesan evangelization efforts, improved facilities for social service outreach, seminarian education, and secured retirement for our priests.
With a goal to raise $125 million, Rooted in Faith – Forward in Hope exceeded expectations, resulting in more than $170 million in payments and pledges.
Because of the generosity of donors throughout the Diocese of Cleveland, Catholic Education grants have been awarded to Catholic schools under the Expanding the Educational Landscape with Innovation case component, which addresses three essential funding priorities: technology, facilities and curriculum.
Parishes have received funds from the Strengthening Our Faith/Lay Faith Formation case component, which supports catechesis for children, adolescents, and adults.
