Appeal tops $4.4 million; donations welcomed

Roman Catholics in the 12-county Diocese of Rochester have donated more than $4.4 million toward the $5.3 million Catholic Ministries Appeal goal for 2006-07.

According to Dave Kelly, appeal coordinator, the CMA had received just under 34,000 commitments totalling $4,403,247 as of Dec. 26. Kelly noted that this represents 83.1 percent of the diocesan goal and is approximately $350,000 ahead of last year’s pace at the same point. The 2005-06 appeal brought in just under $4.5 million from more than 37,000 donors.

The appeal, in its 26th year under Bishop Matthew H. Clark, supports parishes, schools and numerous ministries throughout the diocese.

To donate, contact any parish, visit or call 585/328-3210. The campaign ends on May 30.
