Annual Catholic Appeal

The 2018 Annual Catholic Appeal is underway!  Have you ever wanted to see the hands, faces, and places of the Annual Catholic Appeal in Western Washington? Your Church supports many ministries and services throughout the Archdiocese – made possible by YOU!

Each year at this time, we are called to prayerfully consider our response as faithful stewards of the gifts which God has generously given us and participate in the Annual Catholic Appeal. This is an opportunity for all of us to support the essential ministries and shared services of the Archdiocese.

More than 60 ministries and services are supported by your contribution to the Annual Catholic Appeal. Many of these directly benefit our parish faith communities and others provide needed assistance to people around us.

This year our parish’s share of the Annual Catholic Appeal is $56,000.  We have a “stretch” goal of at least $70,000.  The over-goal dollars will come back to the parish to help fund this year’s parish project of remodeling the parish office so that our new Parochial Vicar (Associate Pastor) will have a place to work and meet with parishioners.

If you gave last year, please consider increasing your gift by 5% this year. If you did not give last year, would you consider a gift of a dollar a day ($365)?  Gifts of any amount are welcome, and your gift will make a big impact on many lives!

Your participation, regardless of the amount, will make a difference. Be assured of my gratitude for your support and of my continuing prayers for you and your loved ones.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Father Jim Johnson, Pastor
