CMA Update

April 19th, 2010, Promulgated by Dr. K

According to the Diocese of Rochester Web site, the diocese has not yet reached its 2009-10 CMA goal of $5.49 million dollars. In fact, the diocese is still more than $380,000 shy of the goal with roughly a month left in this year’s campaign.

Perhaps not enough parishes have shown the CMA music video during Mass?


Rather, maybe it’s the goofy Catholicism present in the video that makes people not want to donate.

    OH DR.K. Watching that video again just makes me want to hug you.

    I'd also like to tell you where they can put that stupid sunflower.

    Why DR K? WHY?

    Sr. Emily – don't you want to keep the spirit alive???

    5 million dollars is a drop in the bucket for area Catholics. Bring in Father John Corapi as bishop this afternoon and he will show you how to quickly raise 50 million dollars.

    You may doubt these eloquent words, but the proof is in the pudding.

    One small example: The small Eastman Kodak Company credit union, now known as ESL, has quickly grown to a 3.9 Billion dollar bank in a short period of time. Now add in all of the big banks and smaller credit unions and you have one heck of a lot of money.

    Remember, the Diocese of Rochester is spread over 7000 square miles. We are now talking about a lot of people and a lot of money.

    The Diocese of Rochester is a very wealthy diocese. The credibility of our bishop has sunk to an all time low with the closing of 50 Catholic schools and over 35 parishes. The parishioners are outraged and have had enough during the past 30 years.

    A simple equation: no parishes and Catholic schools = "no money".

    I don't see how people can contribute to this when every year the bishop wants more money, yet we have less parishes and schools. That doesn't make any sense.

    If Fr. Corapi became our bishop, there would be so much awesomeness in Rochester, I don't know where to begin! lol
