Financially Supporting Vocations

The following initiatives officially support vocation in the Diocese of Spokane.


Annual Catholic Appeal

Each year, parishioners throughout the Diocese of Spokane support the ministry of the Bishop by pledging to the Annual Catholic Appeal. This collection helps fund the expenses of the priestly formation program: Tuition, Room & Board, and Retreats,.  In addition, it pays for Vocation Awareness & Promotion activities such as Quo Vadis Days and Vocare. Thank you for your generous support of the Annual Catholic Appeal. For more information, or to make a pledge, please visit below.
