Last year was the first year we met our goal for our diocesan CMA (Read the article Fr. Jeff posted on his blog after we met our goal). We hope to do the same this year. Last year’s goal was $45,750. This year’s goal is up just $445 (1%) while the diocesan goal is up 3%

Our CMA Campaign Prayer
O God, our loving Creator and giver of all good gifts, bless our parishes, strengthen our faith and grant us the spirit of Christian Stewardship so that we may give generously of our time, talent and treasure to the building of Your Kingdom here in our church and throughout the world. We pray for your help in achieving success in this campaign, so that we can help others throughout our diocese. This we ask through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, One God, now and forever. Amen.
