Annual Appeal in Action
The Annual Appeal funds more than 70 ministries and programs within the Archdiocese of Washington. In many cases, it is the only source of funds for these ministries.
2021 Annual Appeal Goal: $11.4 million
Our mission to seek Christ manifests itself in countless ways in the Archdiocese of Washington. From faith formation and catechesis, to outreach and evangelization, your gift will have a wide-ranging impact benefiting thousands across the District of Columbia and five surrounding counties of Maryland.
We invite you join in the mission of the Annual Appeal as we seek Christ together. By strengthening the charitable works of our Archdiocese, you enable all those Seeking Christ to find His healing, His word, and His friendship.
SEEKING CHRIST’S HEALING
The Archdiocesan community cares for those seeking God’s healing in mind, body and soul. Whether it’s visiting the sick in hospitals, reaching out to mothers facing unexpected pregnancies, or bringing Christ’s love to college campuses, these works of mercy take place on the front lines of healing a broken world.
SEEKING CHRIST’S WORD
We are called to proclaim Christ’s Word every- where we go. By supporting the ministries of the Annual Appeal, including those that form our priests and religious, you help spread the Good News to people from all walks of life.
SEEKING CHRIST’S FRIENDSHIP
During this time of physical and social distancing, we want to reassure all those feeling alone that God is always near. The ministries supported by the Annual Appeal are communities of faith through which others can be embraced into Christ’s unconditional love.
