Archbishop's Catholic Appeal


“May the Lord reward you for your kindness.” (Ruth 1:8)

YOU are making a difference

Donors, like you, put their courage into action to change lives and bring people closer to Christ. Gifts to the Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal serve the faithful in every life stage or circumstance, like the developmentally disabled who receive religious education, sacraments or housing through archdiocese ministries.

YOU are connecting our youth

Steubenville of the Rockies brought more than 1,000 teens closer to Christ this year with its annual youth conference with “fun, faith, and family, full of intimate experiences with the Lord, great music, and more,” hosted by
the Evangelization ministry supported by the Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal.

YOU are providing faith education.

The appeal provides Catholic education for more than 9,000 youth at 35 schools in the archdiocese. Appeal donations made it possible for the archdiocese to show appreciation to our Catholic school teachers who sacrifice competitive pay for the opportunity to share Christ’s message with their students.

YOU are forming our holy priests

The appeal funds two archdiocese seminaries that form our future priests,
like Father Tony Davis who was ordained this spring. Davis now serves St. Stephen Catholic Church and is commissioned to become a U.S. Navy chaplain. Davis exemplifies the dedication and selflessness of these men who give their whole lives to Christ’s church.

YOUR courage in action

  • Deepening the faith lives of 36,000 individuals through religious education.
  • Advancing the academic studies and spiritual formation of more than 110 seminarians.
  • Strengthening our Catholic School System, which educates and forms more than 9,000 students.
  • Providing more than 104,000 nights of shelter to the homeless.
  • Serving more than 612,000 meals to the hungry.
  • Hosting more than 3,000 people at Annunciation Heights summer camp and JP II Outdoor Lab.

2021 Results
