Goal: $105,000 Pledged/paid:$59,059
First of all, please know that I am delighted as I continue serving you here at St. Paul’s parish. We desire to be a family of believers centered upon the Holy Eucharist, the Word of God and helping to serve the poor. I would like to thank the 221 donors who have contributed $55,700 for Catholic Ministries Appeal. That is 53% of our total goal of $105,000. I am appealing to those who have not yet given their gifts for CMA to please give something so that we can reach our goal before the end of this year. Some parishes have already reached their goal and we have to take good care of our St. Paul’s parish. I personally thank you for your continued support of our parish as you truly make Christ alive and present for others here at St. Paul’s Church and beyond. With every best wish and a promise of my prayers for you and your loved ones during this Advent season. And please also remember that God loves you and so do I.

When you are ready to make your gift, advise your IRA administrator to send the check directly to the CMA at 1150 Buffalo Rd, Rochester, NY 14624.

The 2021-2022 CMA is now over.
Thank you to the 317 individuals/families who contributed $89,021.
Our final amount short of our goal was $17,461. Due to a generous grant of $5,461 by the Diocese, our final shortage bill has been reduced to $12,000.
If you wish to donate to the parish to help with this shortage, please make your checks payable to "St Paul's Church" and note "CMA shortage" in the memo line. Or you may donate to the CMA shortage through this link.
