2018 Catholic Ministries Appeal (CMA)
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.
The goal for the 2018 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.
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 2018 Catholic Ministries Appeal.
