Annual Catholic Appeal

Your gift matters in 2021.

Together we bring Christ to others

The 2021 Annual Catholic Appeal emphasizes that together as Catholics we can all heal the wounds and soothe the worries from the many calamities we have endured in recent times. Bishop Soto reminds us that as our communities heal from the paralyzing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and accompany those in physical and emotional poverty, we can bring mercy and hope to others through the Annual Catholic Appeal.

Thank you for your heartfelt response in 2020.

2020 results demonstrate that God’s people in the Diocese of Sacramento are committed to ensuring that our neighbors in need can experience His healing presence. $4.1 million in commitments were received from more than 23,000 Catholics.

You make the difference. 362,000 were helped last year.

Prayerfully consider a gift in 2021 with an online donation or through your parish. Your gift helps ensure that throughout the year, our Catholic Charities can respond to the most pressing needs.

Everyone benefits from your gift

The Poor and the Vulnerable

Your generosity enables Catholic charitable organizations and parish ministries to assist people who are in desperate need. Not everyone can be on the front lines providing assistance. Through the Annual Catholic Appeal we can all provide resources that go directly to the organizations in need of support. We can all be there for others through the Appeal.  

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.
