Opus Christi Magnum
Opus Christi Magnum, meaning "The Great Work of Christ”, is the primary annual fundraiser for Catholic Services of Acadiana. Opus Christi Magnum is the successor to the Bishop's Charity Ball and Bishop's Charity Gala, which operated successfully for 20 years. In 2008 Bishop Michael Jarrell restructured the format to reduce overhead costs, thereby increasing net donations to benefit individuals and families experiencing poverty, hunger and homelessness. On average, 97 cents of every dollar donated to Opus Christi Magnum directly benefits Catholic Services of Acadiana. Opus Christi Magnum is a distinctly separate campaign from the annual Bishop's Service Appeal.
