The vital programs and services provided by the Archdiocese of Baltimore serve 137 parishes and thousands of Catholics in 66 cities and towns across the State of Maryland. The Annual Appeal will continue to play a key role in sustaining the many good works of archdiocesan ministries that give back to our community, and will strengthen our Catholic faith. The Annual Appeal for Catholic Ministries is funded through the generosity and commitment for those who believe in these ministries and who want to ensure they remain strong.
