Each year, parishioners throughout the Diocese of Spokane support the ministry of the Bishop by pledging to the Annual Catholic Appeal. This collection helps fund the expenses of the priestly formation program: Tuition, Room & Board, and Retreats,. In addition, it pays for Vocation Awareness & Promotion activities such as Quo Vadis Days and Vocare.
All funds are placed into the Diocesan Ministries Fund in order to ensure that they will be used only for the intentions of the donor: the continuing mission of the Church in Eastern Washington.
Thank you for your generous support of the Annual Catholic Appeal. For more information, or to make a pledge, please visit the Diocesan Ministries Fund website by clicking here.
