Dear Friends,
I’m writing to invite you to participate in Archbishop Etienne’s 2024 Annual Catholic Appeal. This Appeal is all about being Catholic, all about being part of a Church that stretches far beyond the boundaries of our own parish. The Annual Catholic Appeal is a combined effort of all our parishes to support a vibrant Catholic community in Western Washington. The Appeal funds Catholic programs for youth and young adults, seminarians, Catholic schools, Hispanic and multicultural ministry, social outreach ministries, as well as administrative support for parishes including liturgy guidance, human resources, and much more.
The Archbishop’s goal for this year’s Appeal is $11 million and, of this amount, our own parish of St. James Cathedral is being asked to raise $363,318. Everything given over and above that amount will come back to the parish for our own needs. This year we intend to use the rebate to support our programs for children and youth, including Children’s Faith Formation, Faith Mentors, and Youth Music Program. We have set our rebate goal for this year at $180,000, which brings our total goal to $543,318. The goal is a bit daunting, but I am confident we can meet it—with your help!
Would you please consider making a gift to this year’s Annual Catholic Appeal? You can fill out and return the enclosed pledge envelope, or make your gift online at https://archseattle.org/give-serve/giving-opportunities/annual-catholic-appeal/giveaca/.
As always, I am profoundly grateful for all the ways you support St. James Cathedral and the work of the Church in Western Washington. May God abundantly bless you during these beautiful Easter days.
                                                Sincerely yours in Christ,
                                                Father Michael G. Ryan
