In 1969, Cardinal O’Boyle established the annual appeal for the Archdiocese of Washington. Since then, the Appeal has delivered millions of dollars to provide loving care, education and leadership to people throughout our community.

Cardinal O’Boyle established the Appeal in 1969 to meet the critical needs he saw in our own community. Today all 143 parishes/missions participate and respond to specific goals for giving.

Today all 143 parishes/missions in our archdiocese participate in the Appeal and have individual goals for giving. Here are results from recent years.
