Fall Appeal Stewardship Update
Dear Donors and CMCS-Men,
With only 3 days left in our Fall Appeal, we find ourselves at 60% of our goal. We are grateful to our many generous supporters thus far; but we still need your support! It is crucial that we raise the $700.00 goal by October 1st – every donation, large or small, does really help get us there. Please consider donating today!  And we need you to pray with us that God inspires many more people to support this work of His! donate.cmcsmen.net 
CMCS has been a staple in the Chicago Catholic Community for 20 years, and we know that many people would miss what we do if we stopped providing our events and online ministry, and we thank you for your continued support. 
So, we're not about to stop, because everything is about to change: 
+ A new generation of CMCS as 2024 will be our 20th Year!
+ There is a new Vicar as Bishop Perry has retired (though he will always be a Co-founder of CMCS).
+ There will thus be a new direction as we meet with Bishop Birmingham about what CMCS will look like, as he becomes our new Episcopal Liaison, and CMCS his apostolate. 
+ There is a new video or podcast ministry developing, as some men only want to engage with video/audio, while others only with the written word. 
+ There will be a new Hispanic and Polish ministry as we locate a CMCS Man to lead each of these important ministries, and keeping them separate and focused is the right way forward. 
+ We are on the cusp of new affiliated ministries of CMCS, starting with the Catholic Men Chicago Edgewater (CMCE) 
+ And much more new things to come!

Please keep the Catholic Men Chicago Southland team and mission in your prayers. We need them to keep up our strength and protection.


We promise to keep you in our prayers, as we understand the great sacrifices you make to keep our mission operational!   


Together, let us continue to protect each other with prayer! 


If you have already sent in your donation for our Fall Appeal, we thank you for your generous support.


With just 3 DAYS LEFT, we need your response today: donate.cmcsmen.net


With sincere thanks for believing in this mission – to God be the glory!

CMCS Co-founder & Executive Director

I invite you to please send your best financial gift by donating online or by check today, your generosity and support is the only way that CMCS survives.
You can also give to CMCS using PayPal, or by sending a check made out to CMCS to:
Vicariate Office C/O
Bishop Joseph Perry
Catholic Men Chicago Southland
3525 South Lake Park Avenue
Chicago, Illinois 60653
Once again, as you consider your ability to give, please take into consideration:
  1. We have never had financial reserves: CMCS Apostolate / CMCSMen.net is entirely user-supported, trusting day by day in God's providence and depending totally on the generosity of the people we serve.
  2. We do not seek to raise more funds than we need: our resources are distributed absolutely free of charge, reaching thousands men around the archdiocese each year—at a cost of only pennies per person served.
  3. We are committed to keeping costs at a minimum: The CMCS Team is all volunteer, and the director earns no full-time salary, and no rent or utilities costs are incurred as we utilize home offices, keeping our annual budget less than $4,000!
This campaign determines that we have the means to continue for 2023.
