Annual Ministry Appeal

Annual Ministry Appeal 2018


We thank all of those who thus far have contributed generously to our 2018 Annual Ministry Appeal (AMA), the one and only fundraiser we do each year for our parish itself! I am pleased to report that we have gotten off to a fast start and have seen record contributions for the first two weeks. Please keep up the excellent work. If everyone contributes something, we will not only achieve, but exceed our $100,000 goal!

We have received over 185 contributions

in just under 3 weeks of the campaign totaling $81,052.68

As a reminder, 100% of each dollar raised will go directly to benefit our ministries. The first $50,000 will go toward Bishop Garcia’s diocesan-wide ministries described in the brochure on our website. Every dollar above $50,000 will support our own parish ministries by paying for necessary repairs for Crespi Parish Hall, which is used by all our ministries as well as for other parish events. We will use this additional $50,000 to continue the work we began last year. The remaining work will make our kitchen safer and even more functional for our many activities there. In addition, we will be converting some old storage space in Crespi into much needed offices for use by our ministries.

This is Carmel Mission’s only annual fund raiser for the parish itself. Together as a community, we can achieve far more than any one of us alone. That is why it is important that every parishioner donate something to this important appeal.

Our two reasonable objectives are: $100,000 and 100% participation!

Please consider making your commitment today and donate to our annual ministry appeal.

We hope each and every parishioner takes this opportunity to support our parish. Thank you again for your continued generosity and support.
