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.
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
