~ Pope Francis

The Annual Catholic Appeal is a combined effort of 169 parishes to support a vibrant Catholic community and to carry out the mission of the Church. The ACA funds Catholic social ministries, programs for youth and young adults, Catholic schools, faith programs and administrative support for parishes such as liturgy guidance, human resources, and much more.
We need your support.

Youth Ministry develops and supports over 90 youth ministers and over 200 core volunteers at parishes working with youth through formation gatherings, volunteer trainings, leadership development and events like the annual Catholic Youth Convention.
This ministry provides resources for immigrant families, and empowers parishes to develop immigrant response programs. We've hosted regional Know Your Rights trainings, immigration summits, walking pilgrimages, vigil Masses and other events to soften hearts and comfort immigrant families.
We comfort the sick at hospitals across Western Washington offering prayer, sacraments and companionship to patients and their families. The ACA provides grants to support regional hospital ministry efforts to serve the specific needs in each region across the archdiocese.
