Annual Catholic Appeal
“All of us are asked, indeed urged, by Jesus to care for one another out of love.”
~ Pope Francis
Support your Catholic community in Western Washington
The Annual Catholic Appeal is a combined effort of 168 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.
