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 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.

Our assessment this year is $144,191. As usual, everything raised over that amount comes back to us in the form of a rebate.
This year, any rebate we receive will be used to build up a “Capital Improvements Fund“. This fund will be a savings account with money set aside for emergency facility repairs that may come up or important scheduled maintenance.
