What is the Annual Catholic Appeal?

The ACA is a combined effort between the Archdiocese of Seattle and 170 parishes to support a vibrant Catholic Community in Western Washington and to carry out the mission of the Church.

The ACA funds Catholic social ministries, programs for youth and young adult ministries, Catholic Schools, faith programs, plus administrative support for parishes such as liturgy guidance, evangelization, human resources, and much more.

Together, we can be Christ to others
