2017 Bishop's Annual Appeal


The Diocese of Baker has Catholic schools in:

St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School in Bend
St. Thomas Catholic School in Redmond
St. Peter Catholic School in Ontario
St. Mary's Academy in Ontario



The past couple of years your generosity, in conjunction with the University of Portland, has allowed us to expand our schools to include a special education position that was shared between two of our schools. Based on that success, we plan to expand the program further for the 2017-2018 school year by providing funding up to $10,000 at each of the four schools to support the cost of specialized teachers to meet the specific needs of each school.

Two schools will use the money to fund a special education teacher and two will use the funds to support the recruitment and retention of Hispanic students.

Please prayerfully consider making the most generous gift you can make;
a gift that expresses your gratitude to God as experienced in your life today.
Your gift can be made as a pledge payable on a monthly basis or as a one-time gift.
