Annual Catholic Appeal


Annual Catholic Appeal

We have now moved into our 6th week of the 2017 Annual Catholic Appeal. The good news is we have reached 93% of our parish goal of $83,276.50. It’s not too late for you to give! Your gift can still help the Annual Catholic Appeal by its support of more than 60 ministries and services that are offered to thousands of individuals across Western Washington. If you haven’t already made your gift, won’t you please consider making a gift this year? No gift is too small. If you’re unsure what to give, please consider a gift of $1 a day or $365 or more. Go online to or use a pledge envelope. If you’d rather call in your gift to the Appeal Office, they can be reached at 800-809-4921. Thank you!


The Annual Catholic Appeal is about being Catholic and recognizing there are priests and deacons to be trained, social services for the needy and poor to be offered, Catholic schools to sustain and grow, retired priests and nuns to support and so much more!


The Annual Appeal allows you to join thousands of Catholics to support more than 60 ministries and services throughout Western Washington. Your support is essential to our mission – without YOU, there would be no Church. Thanks to your generosity, our church is here in times of need providing comfort and hope.

There are 175 parishes and missions in the Archdiocese, serving 579,500 Catholics. When you give a gift to the Annual Catholic Appeal, your money goes to support over 60 ministries and services.

Some of the ministries supported by your gift include:

♦ Catholic Faith Formation ♦ Multicultural Ministries
♦ Catholic Youth Organization ♦ Catholic Schools
♦ Youth and Young Adult Evangelization ♦ Sisters' Retirement
♦ Catholic Community Services ♦ Tribunal
♦ Retired Priests' Medical Care & Priests' Pension ♦ Seminarian Formation
♦ Diaconate & Religious Life ♦ Lay Ecclesial Ministry


Parishes are direct recipients of the ministries and services supported by the Annual Catholic Appeal. In addition, any money received and exceeding the parish assigned goal is returned through a rebate to your parish to use for a stated project or as needed.

Some of last year's projects included:

♦ Mission Trips ♦ Soup Kitchen
♦ World Youth Day ♦ New Website
♦ New church lighting

♦ Housing assistance
