Faithful Servant Fund

Faithful Servant Fund

“Well done my good and faithful servant. Come, share your Master’s joy.” (Matthew 25: 21)

Catholic Charities introduced the Faithful Servant Fund in the fall of 2019 to focus our ongoing efforts to raise dollars to support the work of all Catholic Charities ministries.

Contributions to the Faithful Servant Fund give Catholic Charities the greatest flexibility to address the most urgent needs within our ministries and the Diocese of Wichita, whether that be helping the hungry, homeless, poor, disabled, lonely or abused.

We found inspiration for the name in the parable of talents in Matthew’s gospel (Chapter 25). Given a share of their master’s wealth, two servants used their talents to grow the portion that they had received, leading him to declare, “Well done my good and faithful servant. Come, share your Master’s joy.”

Contributions to annual and specific appeals, monthly donations, and other activities will be collected within the Faithful Servant Fund and used to address the greatest needs in our community.
