WHAT IS THE CATHOLIC MINISTRIES APPEAL (CMA)?

THE CMA SUPPORTS SIX LOCAL MINISTRIES

The Catholic Ministries Appeal is the annual campaign to support six local ministries that teach, feed, and heal. All 200+ parishes of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati join together to invite participation in this vital appeal.

St. Rita School for the Deaf

Since its inception over 100 years, St. Rita has provided services to over 2,600 children with profound hearing loss and through the years we have expanded our services to include children with Apraxia, Down Syndrome and those on the Autism Spectrum.

Retired Archdiocesan Priests & Senior Clergy

These men of God celebrate Mass, administer the sacraments, and educate and guide our families. Diocesan priests have given us decades of faithful service, receiving very modest compensation from our parishes for their work.

Campus, Hospital, & Prison Ministries

College students have opportunities to continue growing in their Catholic faith and deepen their relationship with Our Lord Jesus Christ. Because of your support to the CMA, we have a Catholic presence at local, non-Catholic universities — University of Cincinnati, Miami University, and Wright State University.

Seminary and Vocations

This year, 47 graduate-level seminarians and 9 college-level seminarians are in formation for the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Your prayers and much needed financial support makes a meaningful impact on those working to fulfill their vocation in the Church.
