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.
