Catholic Ministries Appeal passes $4 million mark

The 2008-09 Catholic Ministries Appeal has surpassed the $4 million mark as it climbs toward its set goal of $5.39 million.

As of Dec. 10, commitments had totaled $4.057 million from more than 28,000 households in the 12-county Rochester Diocese. This total represents more than 75 percent of the overall goal.

“Contributions to the appeal enable the diocese to provide critical support to parishes, including training and support for catechetical leaders, youth ministry opportunities, migrant ministry, grants to inner city parishes, pastoral planning, and Catholic education. In addition, the appeal benefits Catholic Charities, which provides outreach to the poor and needy through regional offices located throughout the diocese,” according to a statement by Dave Kelly, CMA coordinator.

The campaign runs through May 31, 2009. Those who have not yet contributed and wish to do so can visit or contact the diocesan Office of Stewardship and Communications at 585-328-3228, ext. 1297.
