What is a PCA?
PCA stands for Pastoral Care Area. A Pastoral Care Area is made up of a number of Roman Catholic parishes, their parishioners, and their clergy. All parishes in the Diocese of Syracuse are in a PCA.
What is the purpose of a PCA?
A PCA shares programs, services, Mass times, staff and clergy with each other to ensure all members of the PCA are served effectively with the clergy and resources available.
If I go to another Catholic Church for Mass do my offering envelopes come back to my home parish?
Yes, all parishes are required to send your envelopes to the parish listed on the front of the envelope. Please place all offerings in your parish envelope or in an envelope with your parish name on it.
