About Us



We are reminded of the call to respond to the needs of the broader church

by the apostle St. Paul’s letter to the Galatians 6:10:
“…So then, while we have the opportunity, let us do good to all,

but especially to those who belong to the family of faith.”

Idaho Catholic Appeal



The annual Idaho Catholic Appeal (ICA) generates funds for the daily operations and sustainability of existing diocesan ministries and programs, which touch the lives of thousands of people throughout Idaho. These funds, raised by our parishes, demonstrate the generous support of our parishioners for the mission of the larger Church. During the course of our campaign it is vital that we maintain the financial resources required to sustain these ministries, programs, services, and the central administrative and pastoral offices.

Seminarian Endowment Challenge 


The income generated from the Seminarian Endowment assist in educating men in formation for the priesthood to serve the Diocese of Boise. The national fundraising organization Catholic Extension has chosen the Diocese of Boise as one of only nine dioceses to participate in its 2014 Seminarian Endowment Challenge. For every qualifying $2 the Diocese raises toward its seminarian endowment this year, Catholic Extension will match $1, up to $50,000. Qualifying donations must be new or increased gifts of $1,000 or more, or else money raised through special fundraising events designated for the program. In order to qualify for the challenge, all funds must be received in cash or readily marketable securities before December 31, 2014. No pledges will be accepted.

Diocesan Capital Campaign


Our diocesan capital campaign, Building On Our Past, Envisioning Our Future, has established a goal of $15,000,000 to be raised over the next four years. These funds will help us renew, strengthen, and sustain our ministries in service to each other and to those who are most in need. They will also help us build a strong and vibrant Church for future generations.

Compelled by the Gospel message to make disciples, preach the good news, and serve the least among us, the faithful of the Diocese of Boise are being invited to join our Bishop in generating the financial means needed to further our mission and secure a solid financial foundation for our future. Will you be part of this journey?
