Archbishop's Annual Appeal

The Archbishop’s Annual Appeal (AAA) assists in funding the overall budget of the Archdiocese and provides services parishes cannot do themselves. Along with other funding sources, your generosity and commitment to the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal allows Archbishop Cordileone and the dedicated staff of the Archdiocese to provide important services to our Universal Church and our local community. Through the Appeal, the Archbishop continues to strengthen the good works of the ministries and agencies that minister to those most in need. The AAA continues to support our children’s future by ensuring the availability of a Catholic education. It continues to sponsor ethnic ministries to reach our diverse communities, to assist those embarking on religious vocations, to provide religious education to our parish youth, to strengthen the faith of our young adults and to speak to our greater community about important social policy concerns.
