Annual Catholic Appeal
After Easter, thousands of Catholics throughout Western Washington pool together funds for:
- Training priests and deacons
- Providing social services for the needy and poor
- Sustaining Catholic school growth
- Many more ministries of the archdiocese
Please contribute to the 2021 Annual Catholic Appeal. Your support is essential to the mission of the Church in Western Washington. Thanks to your generosity, our church is here in times of need providing comfort and hope. Learn more here.
All contributions received over our goal will come directly back to St. Columban and St. Peter as a rebate. This year’s rebate projects will be announced.

Called to Serve Christ, a campaign for our priests, sisters & family of faith
Regardless of which option you choose, please specify "St. Columban - Yelm" or "St. Peter - Tenino" as your parish.
Stewardship is based on the understanding that everything we have, including personal skills and possessions, is a gift from God. We show our gratitude for these gifts by returning a portion of them back to Him to help build the Kingdom of God on earth. This type of sacrificial giving is:
- An intentional response to God's generosity
- Proportionate to size of gifts ("first fruits,” not leftovers)
- From substance rather than our abundance
- Tied to our belief that God will provide for our security and not the world
Here are three ways you can help:
- Join a Parish Ministry or offer up extra prayers
- Share a skill that could elevate the church
- Give a financial offering online or during Mass
In addition to normal giving, Catholics are also asked to share at special times:
During Mass after sacrificial giving, we periodically request for prayers and financial help for special causes such as disaster relief and missionary work.
Fall Stewardship Campaign
One a year, parishioners are asked to pledge money for the upcoming year. Depending upon the amount projected, St. Columban and St. Peter plan their ministry efforts and enhancements.
