This annual appeal provides financial support to Ministries, programs and agencies throughout the Archdiocese and helps meet the capital needs of Catholic Schools and new Churches.
Once each parish meets its Archdiocesan Project Advance fundraising goal for the year, plus appeal expenses, every dollar raised by that parish is rebated to that parish for its own needs and projects.
Archbishop Michael Miller’s Priorities

Support essential charities like Catholic Family Services, The Door Is Open, Refugee Sponsorship & Resettlement, Prison Ministry, Men’s Hostel, First Nations Ministry and other Catholic Charities in Need.
The Clergy Care Fund
Through this Fund, the Archdiocese provides supplementary medical care, accommodation and remuneration for priests in need.
St. Joseph’s Society
This Society provides support to retired priests and financial assistance for priests who, due to medical disability, illness or infirmity, are unable to perform the duties of active Ministry.
New Sites Fund
This Fund finances the purchase and development of land for new churches and schools.
Catholic High Schools Construction Fund
The Archdiocese currently has six regional high schools, all of which have varying needs for renovations and improvements so they may continue to provide an effective learning environment for the young people they serve.
