Catholic Schools

Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Washington are centers of academic excellence and alive with Gospel values, cultivating students’ minds, opening their hearts and nurturing their spiritual development. They have educated leaders for our Church, communities and nation for generations.  Yet today, without tuition assistance, many families would not be able to afford to give their children this blessed opportunity.

Your generous Appeal donation helps more young people to receive a Catholic education rooted in our faith and moral values, which prepares them to build a thriving future for themselves and the community.

Campus Ministries

Campus ministries at local universities, like the Catholic Student Center at the University of Maryland, provide for the sacramental and pastoral needs of students, inviting them to grow in relationship with God, deepen their faith, share meals and other fellowship, and become future leaders in the community and in the Church.
