Six Local Ministries Depend on the CMA for Annual Support

Catholics in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati use the Catholic Ministries Appeal to provide a path of hope.

These ministries are:

Each of these local Catholic ministries depends on faith-filled Catholics of our archdiocese for a key part of their budget each year. The Catholic Ministries Appeal (CMA) is a once-a-year outreach, when all our parishes, more than 200 strong, join together to support these ministries, doing more than one parish could alone.

Whether you’re a long time supporter ... or considering a gift for the first time... we ask you to learn about these ministries on this website, and prayerfully consider making a pledge to the 2017 Catholic Ministries Appeal.

The CMA Goal Breakdown

Pie Chart of CMA Money Distribution

The goal for the 2017 CMA is $5 million, the same amount as last year. Your help is needed to reach this important goal!

Ninety cents of every dollar contributed goes directly to fund the ministries – a ratio that gets very high marks from those who set the standards.

Every parish that exceeds its Appeal goal receives 50% of the “overage” for its own ministries, evangelization, and other worthy efforts.
