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.
It is with immense joy and heartfelt gratitude that I announce the launch of Called to Renew at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish. This campaign will provide much-needed funding for parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, including ours, as well as strengthen important ministries and programs that impact us all.
Each parish has been given a goal for the campaign. Our goal is $485,000, of which 50 percent will remain at our parish. We will also retain 100 percent of the funds we collect over our goal. In other words, if our campaign is successful, we will receive a minimum of $242,500 to address our own needs.
Immaculate Heart of Mary has a rich history in Los Angeles, specifically in the East Hollywood area. Called to Renew will ensure we can continue to be a vital presence in our community. Details about how we plan to use our share of the campaign funds are on the following page.
Please take a moment to prayerfully discern how you can most generously support this campaign. I also encourage you to consider making a five-year pledge, which will allow us the best opportunity to reach our goal. This is a wonderful parish, and I am amazed at how our community always works together to meet the needs that arise. I know you will do whatever you can to make this campaign a success.
We entrust our Called to Renew campaign to the intercession of our patroness, the Blessed Mother Mary, and the love in her Immaculate Heart.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.
Our Parish Receives
To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.
Our parish lacks a central space for gatherings, prayer group meetings, ministry events, and other activities. Designing, renovating, and reimagining the current front rooms of our parish center will create a multipurpose hall to better serve our community.
Church & School Improvement Projects
Our church is the heart of this community, and our school is one of our most important ministries. Both require much-needed improvements. Painting the interiors, repairing windows, relining the parking lot, and installing cameras will help maintain the integrity of these buildings and create a safer environment.
Parish Rectory Kitchen
After many years of wear and tear, the kitchen in the parish rectory is in need of updating. Addressing issues with the flooring and cabinets will make our priests’ residence more comfortable.
Renovated restrooms have long been on our parish wish list. Realizing this dream will provide improved and more functional facilities for parishioners and visitors alike, improving the experience of all who join us for worship.
