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 $146,807. Every dollar that we raise over that amount comes back to our parish in the form of a rebate. We are very excited for the Dominican Sisters’ return to Star of the Sea and there is much to do to make sure we can provide for them before they arrive. The first priority will be remodeling the rectory to better serve the needs of the Sisters. This year we plan on using the rebate to set up a convent and cover associated costs to bring the Dominican Sisters to Star. Thank you for your contribution to help welcome the Dominican Sisters!
