What is the Catholic Ministries Appeal (CMA)? 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. We will announce this to the parishes on the weekend of January 31st and will have a second collection on the weekend of February 6/7.  Please be as generous as possible.


2020 CMA Surpasses Goal!

We are pleased and humbled to announce that over $5.28 million was pledged to the 2020 CMA! Check out the progress of the appeal by parish in the report below.
