What is the Annual Catholic Appeal?
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 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 Appeal, your money goes to support over 60 ministries and services. Our parish is responsible to to support a share of the cost of these common ministries. Whatever you donate over that share funds our “parish project.” So the Appeal is really two fundraisers in one!
How much should I give?
Pledging to pray a daily prayer for the ministries of our Archdiocese is a sign of unity. Please also consider a financial pledge. Donating 1% of your income to support the Church in Western Washington guides some of our fellow Catholics.
The average gift to the 2014 ACA was $343. If you are able to participate this year, would you consider a gift of $1 a day or an annual gift of $365 or more? Gifts of any amount are welcome and your gift will make a difference in the lives of thousands of your neighbors - Catholic and non-Catholic alike.
