Case Statement

The Archdiocese has initiated a $100 million campaign to provide long-term funding for retirement and medical needs of priests and women religious, as well as support of individual parishes. A successful campaign will allow the Archdiocese to:

 

Establish a stronger position to provide a consistent, appropriate retirement for priests by moving from a pay-as-you-go system to a fully-funded model for priest pension and medical plans.

Increase the ability of women religious orders to care for their senior members while continuing their ministry to God’s people.

Give parishes more resources for their local ministries, services, works and programs.

Lead by example in prayer, action, and generosity.

Reinforce a dynamic faith for the next generation of Catholics in Western Washington.
