Share Our Legacy of Caring and Diversity

For more than 75 years, the Archdiocese of Washington has spread the gospel from generation to generation bringing Christ’s love to our diverse Catholic community—each day Mass is celebrated in more than 20 languages in the District of Columbia and five surrounding counties.

Because of the support provided by so many people like you, we accomplish the work of the Church of Washington in so many meaningful ways. Whether it’s outreach provided by your parish, formation of priests through our St. John Paul II Seminary, the poor and those in need served by Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington, our largest social service agency in the region; the important work of education our 62 Archdiocesan Catholic schools provide; or the needs of vulnerable women and children served by St. Ann’s Center for Children, Youth and Family; with your thoughtful philanthropy you not only assure these important arms of outreach are extended, but help us to make Christ present in tangible ways to our brothers and sisters.

  • You will see how to save money on income, gift and estate taxes and redirect those amounts for use in ways you choose.
