Upon This Rock

Supporting our Priests - Strengthening Our Church

Diocese of Davenport Capital Campaign

Campaign Priorities

The Diocese of Davenport’s Upon This Rock Capital Campaign,
which kicked off in spring 2022, will focus on three key areas:
  1. Priests’ retirement and health care funding
  2. Seminarian education and formation
  3. Strengthening parishes

The Parish Share

Funds from the campaign will be an important element for capital projects in the years ahead.  With a new pastor coming soon, it will be prudent to determine the use of the fund over the three-year pledge period.
