Annual Catholic Appeal 2019

Each year, the Archbishop asks for the participation of Catholics living in the Archdiocese to support the Annual Catholic Appeal. He asks us to generously support the many on-going ministries of the Church that provide educational, pastoral, and charitable outreach to those living in the Archdiocese. The Annual Catholic Appeal provides about 64% of the support needed to fund the diocesan ministries each year. The other funding comes from parish assessments, investment income, and other donations.

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 is an opportunity for all of us to support the essential ministries and shared services of the Archdiocese.
