Catholic Ministries Appeal

Our goal this year for the Catholic Ministries Appeal is $62,800.00.  To date $43,125.18 has been pledged.  We are $19,674.82 away from our parish’s goal.  This week, we will have a collection to help us towards the goal of $62,800.  If we make goal we will have 20% of the goal returned to the parish, and 80% of whatever is over goal.  Typically, we have made our goal every year.  Over the past few years, we have missed our goal.  The Catholic Ministry Appeal (CMA) helps the Church’s mission on Long Island.  It helps Catholic Charities, formation of priests and deacons, and helps our parish with the rebate we receive upon making goal.


For many years now, the parish has an electronic giving (e-giving) platform via Faith Direct.  It is a quick and easy way to give to the parish.  You can also direct where you want the funds to go, in particular collections.  To get started, simply use this secure online enrollment form (  You can email or call their toll-free number, 866-507-8757 to speak with someone directly.  If you’d like more information, you can visit the Faith Direct website.

For now, we continue our walk with the Lord.
