CMA donations rise to 82 percent of goal

The 2008-09 Catholic Ministries Appeal had reached more than 82 percent of its goal by the new year as it climbed toward a set amount of $5.39 million.

As of Dec. 29, commitments had totaled $4,441,900 from donors across the 12-county Rochester Diocese, according to Dave Kelly, CMA coordinator. This total represents 82.4 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,” Kelly said in a statement.

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