Archdiocesan Fund Drive: 

Last month, Fr. Dick and John Eisen attended an archdiocesan meeting. The diocese is looking at how to support its priests for the next 20 years. At the moment, they are looking at a shortfall of funds for their retirement and medical needs. This drive will not only benefit  priests, it also will benefit religious sisters and parishes. All 170 parishes in Western Washington are expected to participate in this effort. This fund raising effort starts in the fall of 2018.
