The Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal (CMAA) is much different than a one-time special collection. It is a pledge campaign where you can make a one-time gift or pledge your gift over 10 months to support the good works of the Diocese.
A gift to the CMAA will touch the lives of many in our Diocese in a positive way. Each gift makes a difference! Together, the gifts of many enable our Diocese to deliver needed education, ministry and services to those who need it most. As you take the time to review the Opening Report and see all the work enabled by the CMAA, please reflect on God’s gifts to you. We are “Held in God’s Hands” and he has given you all that you have. We can give thanks to Him for our blessings through a gift to the CMAA.
If you received your pledge form in the mail, please complete it and mail it or bring it to Mass next weekend. For those of you who have not received the mailing, we will conduct our Commitment/In-Pew Weekend process at all Masses next weekend.
After our parish exceeds its CMAA Goal of $163,867 in paid pledges, 70% of any additional funds are returned for use in our parish.
Thank you for your prayerful consideration and generous response.
