The incarcerated receive support through RCIA classes, the celebration of Mass, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and other faith-based programs. The ministry serves at Lebanon Correctional, Warren Correctional, and Dayton Correctional Institutions.
Catholic chaplains and lay pastoral ministers at local hospitals offer prayers, the sacraments, companionship during a hospital stay, and a listening presence to those in need.
With the support from the CMA, 6 local hospitals benefit from our Hospital Ministry:
- Kettering Medical Center
- Miami Valley Hospital
- University Hospital Medical Center
- The Jewish Hospital
- Bethesda North
- Good Samaritan Hospital, Cincinnati
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.
Why are the Catholic Universities not part of the CMA funding?
The five Catholic institutions of higher education in the Archdiocese — University of Dayton, Xavier University, Chatfield College, the Mount St. Joseph University and the Athenaeum of Ohio — all provide ministry as part of their mission and identity as Catholic Institutions. The CMA helps fund campus ministry at the non-Catholic, state schools in the Archdiocese.
