Annual Catholic Appeal

The Appeal is solely dedicated to the social mission of the Church. Your gift matters in 2019.

Together we bring Christ to others

The 2019 Annual Catholic Appeal emphasizes what we do together as Catholics to help our sisters and brothers in Northern California. Bishop Soto reminds us that we are all saved by the mercy of our crucified Lord, who shared in our suffering and sacrificed himself for our sake. When we give ourselves through the Annual Catholic Appeal, we join Catholic Charities…and our own parish outreach…to bring the mercy of Christ to those who suffer in the margins.

Thank you for your heartfelt response in 2018.

2018 results say a lot about God’s people in the Diocese of Sacramento. Nearly $3.8 million in commitments were received from close to 26,000 Catholics. Detailed results will be sent to parishes in the coming weeks.

You make the difference. 253,000 were helped last year.

Prayerfully consider a gift in 2019 with an online donation or through your parish. Your gift extends a helping hand and the love of Christ to thousands of our neighbors and friends in need.

Everyone benefits from your gift

The Poor and the Vulnerable

Your generosity enables Catholic charitable organizations and parish ministries in our neighborhoods to assist in desperate need. Funds raised by the Annual Catholic Appeal go directly to the organizations that need our support.

Seminarians and Catholic Education

The Appeal provides critical support to offset the rising cost of education for seminarians currently in formation to serve as priests in our diocese. The Appeal also provides funds for Catholic School tuition assistance in our most economically challenged communities.

Parish Social Service Ministries

25% of funds contributed to the Appeal are returned to each parish for its own social service ministries. Your participation in the Annual Catholic Appeal has enabled parishes to add new ministries, expand existing programs or support local Catholic community charities.

Each of Us

The Annual Catholic Appeal is an opportunity for each of us to go forth and proclaim the Gospel in our lives by sharing our resources with others in need.
