Community Mission Appeal

What is the Community Mission Appeal?

When we let God’s love open the door to our church and our hearts, transformative ministry begins. Episcopalians throughout the Diocese of Louisiana have opened doors to feed the hungry, revitalize neighborhoods stricken by poverty, minister to strangers and prisoners, educate children, care for senior citizens, and so much more. All of us can participate in these missions in different ways. Many of us can donate our time and effort. All of us can offer up our prayers and make a financial donation in some amount, small or large.

The Community Mission Appeal – or CMA – is dedicated to taking our diocese’s mission beyond the physical walls of our churches. One hundred percent of the gifts received through CMA will go directly to churches in the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana in the form of grants to support the development and continuing strength of mission work.

The CMA is not the same as the Bishop’s Discretionary Fund. The Bishop’s Discretionary Fund is a special needs fund to meet unplanned needs and unbudgeted requests during the year.

CMA Sunday: September 15 or 22

September 15 or 22 (your church’s choice) is Community Mission Appeal Sunday. The Community Mission Appeal (CMA) was established in order to help parishes in the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana reach out to their neighbors who are most in need. Funds for the CMA are raised through parish appeals throughout the Diocese, as well as individual contributions. The amount to be distributed will depend upon the success of those efforts. Last year, we were able to award $20,000 to these ministries.
