2021 Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal
The Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal(ACA) supports the Archdiocese’s ministries in western Oregon – including pastoral ministries and care for the priesthood. Pastoral ministries spread the word of Jesus to all people in every step of their spiritual journey. Our ministers actively bring the love of God into people’s lives by providing supportive care to those who are sick or suffering, people with disabilities, people who are deaf, and those in prison.
Parishes, ethnic vicariates and campus ministries throughout western Oregon also benefit from the ACA. The ACA also provides for the Holy Orders by caring for retired priests, educating the next generation of priests, and supporting the permanent diaconate.
