I am delighted to launch the Diocese of Sale Trinity Families 2022 May Appeal. Trinity Families is the charitable arm of the Catholic Diocese of Sale and provides funding through grants to other charities working to provide services and programs for families within the boundaries of the Diocese.

Since its inception (originally named Bishop’s Family Foundation), Trinity Families has provided over $2,000,000 in grants. For the past two years this Annual Appeal has been on hold due to the impact of COVID but Trinity Families, through sound management, has still been able to provide grants in 2020 and 2021.

Your donation to the Trinity Families 2022 Appeal will assist with the ongoing support given by Trinity Families throughout the Diocese of Sale. I encourage you to give generously and pray for those who are providing the programs and services.

All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.


Donations to Trinity Families are possible online through CDF Pay.


For more information regarding  bequests and charities’ applications for annual allocations of money visit the Trinity Families website
