Applications for 2012 Parish Development Grants are now being accepted


CHICAGO, IL [MW Diocese Communications] -- For the fifth consecutive year, the Diocese of the Midwest is accepting applications for Parish Development Grants.


Parish Development Grants are lump sum cash grants available to any diocesan community. They provide "seed money" to initiate and develop new ministries or to expand existing ministries in specific ways. Grants are commonly offered in amounts of $2,000 to $3,000, although larger grants may be considered.

"These grants can be an important part of a community’s efforts to continually strengthen its ability to live a life in Christ in community," said his Grace, Bishop Matthias in a recent letter to all parish clergy. "I am encouraging every parish to seriously consider submitting a grant proposal for a project important to its faithful."

Applications -- available at http://domoca.org/phgrant.html -- must be submitted no later than August 1, 2012. Grant decisions will be made by the Diocese’s Parish and Mission Development Committee, comprised of members of the Bishop’s Council and Diocesan Council.

While a partial list of past grant projects is available here, Mr. Joseph Kormos, Parish Development Ministry facilitator, is available to field questions and offer assistance in proposal development. He may be contacted at 513-683-1911 or parishfacilitator@domoca.org.
