Called to Serve  

The Archdiocese of Seattle is currently conducting the Called To Serve as Christ capital campaign. This $100 million campaign is to address the pension and medical needs for our retired priests and women religious.  Learn more about the campaign.

 

Each parish is asked to do its part in leading the campaign to success by asking parishioners to prayerfully consider a three-year pledge. Our parish goal is $775,515. We know our parish, through prayer, hard work, and generosity, will do our part to help accomplish this goal. Read the support letter from Linda DeMarce and Fr. Jean Pierre Kasonga.

Note: The Annual Catholic Appeal funds the archdiocese's ongoing mission and administration. The Called To Serve as Christ funds are separate. You can be confident that all funds the archdiocese receives, whether through parish billings, the ACA, this campaign, or other avenues, will be used prudently and effectively. The archdiocesan chancery, Priest Pension Plan, and Priest Health Plan are independently audited annually.

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 our parish to use for a stated project or as needed.

Las parroquias son los recipientes directos de los ministerios y servicios que son apoyó de la Petición Católica Anual. Además, cualquier dinero recibamos, y si es mas de la meta parroquia, regresa a la parroquia para usar por proyectos o como necesita.
