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. Since the establishment of the CMA Fund in 2015, we have awarded nearly $90,000 to these ministries.
Community Mission Appeal Sunday will be Pentecost Sunday, May 23. 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 the development and the continuing strength of mission work.
Love is the connection that binds us all together with our God. It is love that sends us into the community to love and serve God by serving our neighbors. With your generous support on May 23, we can provide funding to make this work possible.
