2015 Annual Catholic Appeal

posted Apr 24, 2015, 3:41 PM by Brian Suda   [ updated Apr 24, 2015, 3:41 PM ]

The 2015 Annual Catholic Appeal campaign is underway! Archbishop Sartain’s letter should be reaching homes soon!

We are seeking everyone’s participation this year so that we reach our goal as quickly as possible!

A witness speaker will join us at all Masses on the weekend of April 25/26 to inform you more about the Appeal and invite you to give if you haven’t given already.

If you would like to make your gift today, you can go online to www.seattlearchdiocese.org/donate 

You can make a one-time gift or spread your payments out — you have until April 2016 to fulfill your pledge. Donating online helps saves the parish money in mailing costs.

Thank you very much for your support and participation!
