Catholic Ministries Appeal tops $4 million

Contributions to this year’s Catholic Ministries Appeal have topped the $4 million mark. The goal of this year’s campaign, which runs through May 31, 2009, is $5.39 million.

As of today, more than 28,000 Roman Catholic households have contributed $4,057,000 to the appeal.

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 12-county Diocese.
