Goal: $106,482                                     Pledged:$74,063

We are at 69.5% of our goal from 293 households.  Thank you!

In the fall we started our CMA campaign with an emphasis on pledging first and paying later. This was to enable parishioners to better incorporate the amount into their budgets. It was estimated that if 450 families (our average total donors) each contributed $237, we could reach our goal of $106,482. The response of over 290 pledges and donations has been very encouraging! But we still have a way to go.
If you haven’t yet pledged to the CMA, please consider it now as we really need the support of everyone. Pledge now, pay in May! Click on the image to the right to go to the DOR CMA page and make a pledge.
Thank you!

Please note: If you are 70 ½ or older, you may wish to consider paying off your pledge through a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD), which may also be part of your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from a traditional IRA. (Before making this type of charitable contribution, consult your tax advisor or IRA administrator.) 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 check should identify that this is a “Retirement Distribution”, as well as provide information identifying the donor and the gift designation (CMA). For more information, please contact Colleen Brade at (585) 328-3210 ext. 1326 or
