"The Called to Serve as Christ campaign is an expression of our deep gratitude to those who have gone before us, especially our bishops, priests, and religious sisters, for the tireless ways they have lived out their vocations for the Lord and for us."






The Called to Serve as Christ campaign is an extraordinary opportunity for all to play a role in strengthening the Catholic Church in Western Washington. This campaign will focus on raising $100 million to strengthen our priest pension and retirement medical plans, provide support to women religious serving or who have served in the Archdiocese of Seattle, and assist key efforts in our parishes. 


$100 million will accomplish the following:

  • $55 million for priests

  • $24 million for religious women

  • $15 million for parishes

Stories of Vocation and Service

This campaign is a small way for all of us to give back to our priests and women religious for answering Christ's call to serve. We honor their stories of vocation and service. During the duration of the campaign, we will share these stories with you.
