Annual Catholic Appeal :: Thank you!!

Each year the Archdiocese asks us to join together and invest in the 60 critical ministries of our Catholic faith, such as emergency services for the poor, seminarian formation, education, youth camps, and our very own Newman Center.

We're very happy to report that our students and community raised over $30,000 to the Annual Catholic Appeal! Thank you!!

With our rebate from the ACA, we are remodeling a room to accommodate the addition of a sixth Peer Minister for this coming school year. Watch our fun promo video above that helps describe just how much our sixth Peer Minister needed your help!

If you didn't get the chance, please prayerfully consider making a gift online today, and help us further our mission to the University of Washington.

Thank you for your prayerful support, and God bless!

Sept 7: Pray for Peace with Pope Francis

Pope Francis made an appeal recently for a day of prayer and fasting.  Please join us along with the worldwide Catholic community in prayer for a peaceful resolution in Syria.

We will hold a special Mass on Wednesday, September 11 at 9PM. The Mass will be in remembrance of the events on September 11, 2001 and to pray for peace in Syria.
