The Bishop’s Annual Appeal (BAA) is a diocese-wide effort that supports the pastoral services and ministries of the Catholic Church in the Diocese of Columbus. The BAA is an opportunity for all Catholics in our diocese as a united diocesan family to share in our call to be good stewards of our Church and its people

Every autumn parishioners are asked to make an planned financial commitment to fund regular operations through our annual offertory drive to support the many ministries and day-to-day operations of the parish.

Providing for the future well-being of your family, and at the same time, supporting the mission of St. Mary can be accomplished by a variety of gifts known as planned gifts. Planned gifts, such as bequests, trusts, life insurance, pooled income funds and annuities can provide benefits to you and your family now, and in the future. 

Please note, parish staff are not attorneys; and can give legal information but not legal advice. Consult with an attorney to discuss your unique situation.


Under the patronage of Our Blessed Mother, and rooted in the Roman Catholic faith since 1835, St. Mary Delaware is a vital and vibrant community that engages the living God in worship and prayer, and in Word and Sacrament. Led by the Holy Spirit, and imploring the intercession of St. Mary, we desire to imitate her role of being the Christ bearer, and bear witness to her Son’s redeeming love that has been poured upon us in Baptism, and sustained by the practices and teachings of the Church.
