(tax ID# 91-0778147)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.

How does my Parish benefit?
Parishes are direct recipients of the ministries and services supported by the Annual Catholic Appeal. In addition, any money received and exceeding the parish assigned goal is returned through a rebate to your parish to use for a stated project or as needed. Our rebate this year will go toward patching the pavement in the back parking lot.

How much should I give to the Annual Appeal?
Please consider donating 1% of your income to support the Church in Western Washington through the Annual Catholic Appeal.
The Archdiocesan average gift is $370. If you gave last year, please consider increasing your gift by 5%. If you did not give last year, would you consider a gift of $365 or more? Gifts of any amount are welcome and appreciated - your gift will make a difference in the lives of thousands of your neighbors - Catholic and non-Catholic alike.
