Archdiocesan Annual Appeal


The Archdiocesan Annual Appeal (AAA) provides parishioners throughout our Archdiocese a unique opportunity to come together. Through the AAA, the over ninety parishes in our Archdiocese unite as one!

The AAA is essential to the work of the Archdiocese of San Francisco. Although we are spread over the counties of Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo, we are one Archdiocese, collaborating in the ongoing mission of evangelization and education.

The theme for this year's Annual Appeal is
"Use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace." Together we are able to demonstrate our faith through the AAA by supporting such critical needs as youth and young adults, parish schools and students, social ministries, ecumenical efforts, and the greater Church.

We ask your help in instilling in the hearts of Catholics throughout the Archdiocese a true sense of stewardship and a recognition that our family of faith extends beyond our individual parish families.




Our 2020 Assessment is $63,671...thanking you in advance for doing your part!
