Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal Office

What is the Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal?

The Archbishop’s Catholic Appeal is the annual fundraiser for the Archdiocese of Denver. Appeal proceeds are invested in nearly forty archdiocesan ministries…ministries that safeguard life within the womb, instruct our youth, educate our seminarians, prepare couples for marriage, form holy families, and offer companionship to the elderly. Every age and stage of life will be enriched through your support of the Appeal.

Why should I give to the Appeal?

Oftentimes, we feel compelled to “give to a need.” Yet, authentic tithing – which flows out of a relationship with God – should be based upon “a need to give.” For the Christian, generosity is not an outwardly imposed burden, but rather, something that arises out of our love for God and neighbor. Genuine sacrificial giving helps store up our treasure in heaven.

Who benefits from the Appeal?

The tangible fruits of the Appeal are diverse and many. Once you donate, your gift will be distributed to nearly 40 ministries that were created to lead others to experience the merciful and compassionate embrace of Jesus Christ.


Watch this video to discover several concrete examples of your gift in action... several examples of how your charity will show others the path to Jesus Christ. May God bless you for becoming an instrument of his mercy.


Este video nos presenta la invitación de nuestro arzobispo a participar en la Colecta Anual, así como ejemplos concretos sobre cómo nuestra donación a la Colecta puede cambiar vidas.
