We have made our goal for the last two years. With your help we can do this again. Last year’s goal was $46,195. This year’s goal is actually down $1,344 while the diocesan goal is up 3%
To find out more about the CMA:
- Each year, as part of the CMA, our diocese makes a video about the appeal. As Bishop Matano has called us to pray for the innocent victims of clergy abuse, the faith of the people, the purification of the church, and the renewal of the clergy, Bishop Matano begins the video by speaking about the abuse crisis. You can find the video on youtube at https://youtu.be/WiO3f6OGXqw.
- Fr. Jeff’s homily for our 2018-2019 appeal
