The Annual Catholic Appeal goes directly to fund over 60 different ministries and services in our archdiocese. This includes seminarians, youth groups, Catholic Schools, Catholic Community Services of Western Washington, and priest and parish support. As Catholics, these ministries help us all in so many ways!
Additionally, it differs from your weekly Stewardship donations in that the pledge is in the spring while Stewardship happens in the fall, and it helps support the wider archdiocese, while your Stewardship pledges and envelopes go directly to support your parish.
Remember that anything above our Annual Appeal goal comes back to the parish as cash to fund projects right here at Sacred Heart! This year, we are planning on implementing several environmental upgrades to the Parish Hall to make us more efficient and better stewards of our environment. Help out and do your part to join in the Body of Christ!
