Please prayerfully consider supporting the ministries and mission of the Diocese of Sacramento. Below is a selection of Bishop Soto's priority initiatives. Your generosity is most appreciated.

Annual Catholic Appeal

The Annual Catholic Appeal is our tradition of being faithful to the thousands of neighbors who need us. Not everyone can be on the frontlines of charity. Through the Appeal, we can all keep Mercy in Motion by helping a vibrant network of dedicated Catholic social service agencies – and our own parishes – care for families and individuals who struggle in poverty here in Northern California.

Giving to the Newman Centers and College Ministry

Newman Centers and College Ministry

Young adults in their twenties are at a critical juncture in their lives and Newman Centers can be instrumental in helping them discover God’s plan for them. A vibrant Newman community attracts Catholic and non-Catholic students, leading to both new and recommitted Catholics. Simply having Newman Centers is not enough. Your gift helps to sustain the newly implemented student led governance model and helps provide much-needed capital improvements to the centers in Chico, Davis and Sacramento.

Giving to Trinity Pines Catholic Center & Camp Pendola

Trinity Pines Catholic Center and Camp Pendola

Trinity Pines Retreat Center is a 280-acre camp and retreat facility nestled in the Sierra Nevada foothills near the historic town of Colfax. It is the Diocese of Sacramento’s premier youth camp and future home of Camp Pendola. You gift supports the renovations and new construction of a dining facility and cabins that are needed to bring the center to full use.

Giving to Vocations


The Christian faithful have an obligation to foster vocations to the priesthood and the religious life by living faithfully the call to holiness, by holding vocations to the priesthood and the religious life in esteem, and by encouraging young men and women to consider the possibility of a call from God to the ordained or consecrated states. Your gift helps to offset the rising cost of education for seminarians currently in formation to serve as priests in our diocese.

Giving to the Priest's Retirement Fund

Priest's Retirement Fund

With demand for retired priest care projected to continue, this is our opportunity to take care of those who, within our own diocese, have spent their lives caring for our spiritual and sacramental needs, and to thank them for their long and loving service.

Support Catholic Education

Nurturing a well-educated community that embodies the Gospel values of Christ is key to ensuring the future of our church. If our children are to become tomorrow’s leaders and active contributors to our church and our world, it is essential that all of our schools are high-quality institutions, in terms of both academics and faith formation. Please consider a gift to your local Catholic School.
