Catholic Ministries Appeal 2019-2020:
The Diocese has launched the 2019-2020 Catholic Ministries Appeal (CMA). The theme for this year’s campaign is I AM the vine, you are the branches. The CMA gives each of us an opportunity to bear good fruit and live out our purpose as the branches of the true vine, Jesus Christ. Through gifts to the CMA, we support crucial outreach and ministries of the Diocese as well as specific services and programs in our parish. Your support enables the Church to be responsive and caring in fulfilling its mission. Please be generous in your response. Every gift is needed and important! Please note, no gifts to the CMA are used to satisfy legal fees or settlement costs associated with abuse.
If you have given to the CMA in the past, you should have received a letter in the mail with your pledge card last week. Please pray for the success of our efforts. Thank you!
A Prayer for Our Campaign
O God, our loving Creator and giver for all good gifts,
Bless our parishes, strengthen our faith and grant us the spirit
Of Christian Stewardship so that we may give
Generously of our time, talent, and treasure
To the building of Your Kingdom
Here in our church and throughout the world.
We pray for your help in achieving success in this campaign,
So that we can help others throughout our diocese.
This we ask through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
One God, now and forever. AMEN.
