Our community is excited to participate alongside all parishes, missions and Catholic centers in the Archdiocese to strengthen and renew our Church for the future. Please continue reading to learn how this campaign will benefit us.
I am writing to you with immense joy and heartfelt gratitude to announce the launch of our parish capital campaign in conjunction with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles’ Called to Renew effort. This campaign will provide much-needed funding for parishes throughout the Archdiocese, and will also benefit Divine Saviour.
Each parish has been given a goal for the campaign. The goal for our parish is $435,000. 50% of all funds raised up to goal will stay with our parish, and if we go over goal, 100% of the funds collected will remain with our parish. If we meet our goal, we will keep $217,500 to address our own needs. Divine Saviour has a rich history of service in Los Angeles. Called to Renew will allow us to continue to be a vital presence in our community. You will find more details about our campaign on the following pages.
As your pastor, I invite you to take a moment in prayer to discern how you can best support this campaign. I also encourage you to consider making a pledge for a five-year period. This will allow us the best opportunity to reach our goal. This is a wonderful parish and faith community, and I assure you that I am very fortunate to be your pastor. I know you will do whatever you can to make this campaign a success.
We entrust this campaign to the intercession of our Blessed Mother and the blessing of our Divine Saviour.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.

Stained Glass Windows
The stained glass windows on the facade of the church are a work of timeless beauty. These windows allow sunlight to enter and illuminate our worship space. Depending on the time of day, the effect can be quite remarkable. However, our stained glass windows are in critical need of repair and professional cleaning to return them to their original luster. We would also like to expand the beauty of our church with twelve additional stained glass windows. These would replace the clear glass windows and complete our sanctuary.
Divine Saviour aims to create a 24-hour adoration chapel in the parish office to provide a quiet space for our community members to pray in the presence of Christ in any time of need.
