Members of the Archbishop’s Circle are strong supporters of their parishes and the Archdiocesan Annual Appeal, providing for the day-to-day operations of the archdiocese.
Membership in the Circle includes a commitment to donate funds over and above parish and Annual Appeal contributions. These funds are used to support special projects of Archbishop Cordileone's choosing that enrich and enhance programs that spread the Gospel throughout San Francisco, San Mateo and Marin counties.
In 2017, Circle funds will support activities such as the new pastoral school for Spanish-speaking Catholics (Escuela Pastoral); stewardship within the archdiocese; the Walk for Life; a pilgrimage for seminarians and young men discerning a vocation; a digital communication conference for parishes; and an expansion of offerings for marriage preparation.
