Individual parishes like our own cannot accomplish the entire mission of the Church in Western Washington without the help and assistance of the Archdiocese of Seattle. Your annual financial support will assist sixty-three ministries and services of the Archdiocese throughout Western Washington. The Archdiocese provides countless staff, resources and expertise that are a huge help to our parish. Our parish would be a much less vibrant place without all the support and resources we receive.
This is one of only two asks that is an expectation of every family (the first being parish stewardship); because we each benefit – at least indirectly – from this ministry. We ask families to consider giving 1% of their income to the Annual Catholic Appeal, or at least $1-per-day, for $365 for the year. This “drive” begins in the spring after Easter, but one may begin giving at any time.
