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.
In 1909, a handful of families embarked on a historic effort – the founding of
Immaculate Conception Church..
As we celebrate the sacrifices of our founders, we realize that it is now time
for us to build upon the foundations they have entrusted to us. We have
been blessed by God to grow from a small faith community into a welcoming
church of more than 1,000 families. We have built a strong tradition of
worship that makes us a vibrant, active, and dynamic place for people of all
ages to grow in faith, serve others, and share the Good News of Jesus as we
connect with Christ, one another, and those in need.
Today, we begin an ambitious effort and ask God to bless our capital
campaign entitled Called to Renew. This campaign will allow us to meet the
needs of our parishioners as well as create warm and inviting spaces for us to
continue to gather, worship and socialize.
The goal for our campaign is $420,000, of which 50% will be used to address
the needs outline on the following page. We also get to keep 100% of any
funds collected above the goal.
To reach this goal, we are asking every parish family to make a gift from the
heart; and, if I’m asking you to make this sacrifice, then I, as your pastor,
a fellow parishioner, will also make a sacrificial pledge myself. Before you
decide on the amount of your gift, please prayerfully consider the generosity
that God has shown you, and the importance of the mission we have been
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.
Our Parish Receives
To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.
It has been a dream of ours for some time to install air conditioning
in the church. During the summer months, it can get uncomfortable
when the temperature outside begins to climb. Installing a new HVAC
system in the church will make our worship environment much more
comfortable for all of us.
Painting the Church
Beauty is an integral and essential part of our Catholic liturgy. It
is indeed a gift from God, as St. Augustine points out. When a
church’s beauty is allowed to wither, the liturgy experience suffers.
It is time for us to restore some of the beauty and luster by painting
the interior of our church.
