Letter From Our Pastor Concerning The
Annual Catholic Appeal 2014

Dear Parishioners of St. Aloysius and Our Lady of Lourdes,

Please join me now in support of the Catholic Church of Western Washington by giving to the Annual Catholic Appeal 2014 Campaign!

Each year at this time, we pause and consider all the good that is done because we give: the homeless are sheltered, the elderly are cared for, our seminarians are prepared for future ministry, to name a few.

Great things are accomplished in the name of Jesus!

The support of every parish is crucial to the success of the Archdiocese and its many ministries and service.

For the Annual Catholic Appeal 2014, we have a goal of $19,830 for St. Aloysius and $6,658 for Our Lady of Lourdes as our share of this year's campaign.

YOUR participation is vital to our success as a parish. I am counting on you to help us achieve our goal.

Every gift we make a difference, but the reality is that some of us are better able to respond financially than others. I am asking that everyone support the Appeal this year in some way.

The suggested pledge plan is on the pledge card. However, if you are unable to pledge that percent, would you consider a gift of $1 a day, or $365 or more to make up for those who cannot give in 2014?

Every dollar given over and above our goal is returned to us by the Archdiocese for our own parish needs.

Your pledge to the Annual Catholic Appeal 2014 is a one-stop donation for over 60 ministries and services in Western Washington!

Thanks to your generosity, our Church is here in times of need providing comfort and hope.

Imagine what we can accomplish if every one gives - Imagine what we can accomplish if you give!

Sincerely in the Risen Lord,

Fr. John J. Ludvik, Pastor

More Annual Catholic Appeal 2014
From The Archdiocese Website:

The Annual Catholic Appeal is about being Catholic and recognizing there are priests and deacons to be trained, social services for the needy and poor to be offered, Catholic schools to sustain and grow, retired priests and nuns to support and so much more!

The Annual Appeal allows you to join thousands of Catholics to support more than 60 ministries and services throughout Western Washington. Your support is essential to our mission - without YOU, there would be no Church. Thanks to your generosity, our church is here in times of need providing comfort and hope.

What Ministires Does My Gift Support?

There are 175 parishes and missions in the Archdiocese, serving 579,500 Catholics. When you give a gift to the Annual Catholic Appeal, your money goes to support over 60 ministries and services.

Some of the ministries supported by your gift include:

  • Catholic Faith Formation
  • Multicultural Ministries
  • Catholic Youth Organization
  • Catholic Schools
  • Youth and Young Adult Evangelization
  • Sisters' Retirement
  • Lay Ecclesial Ministry
  • Tribunal

How Does My Parish Benefit?

Parishes are direct recipients of the ministries and services supported by the Annual Catholic Appeal. In addition, any money received and exceeding the parish assigned goal is returned through a rebate to your parish to use for a stated project or as needed.

Some of last year's projects included:

  • Outreach ministry to the poor
  • New youth and family ministries
  • Refurbish stained glass windows
  • Pipe organ installation
  • New church sound system
  • Housing assistance

How Much Should I Give To The Annual Catholic Appeal?

Please consider donating 1% of your income to support the Church in Western Washington through the Annual Catholic Appeal.

The average gift to the 2013 Annual Catholic Appeal was $326. Please know that every gift, no matter the amount, can and will make a difference. The reality is that some of your fellow parishioners will not be able to financially support the appeal this year.

If you are not doing so already, would you please consider a gift of $1 a day or $365 or more, to make up for those who cannot give in 2014?

How Is My Dollar Allocated?

For every dollar contributed:

  • 74¢ goes to Ministries & Services
  • 19¢ goes to Parish Rebates
  •   7¢ goes to Appeal Expenses
