Top 10 Reasons to Contribute to the Catholic Ministries Appeal
#2 It gave us Father Matthew Jones! The diocesan Catholic Ministries Appeal underwrites our programs to promote awareness of religious vocations and helps to offset the costs of educating our seminarians. There are currently 17 young men in theology and pre-theology programs, studying for the priesthood in our Diocese. This includes the son of Joe and Wendy Maurici of Saint Boniface Parish. CMA monies collected in previous years helped educate Father Matthew as he prepared for ordination and service in our Diocese. We know that was money well-spent. So in thanksgiving for Father Matthew and to support young Joe Maurici, you have reason #2 for contributing to the CMA!
