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 my dear parishioners and committed members of our parish community. We are very grateful for your support in helping to form our parish community and for the spaces we use to congregate as a parish community, such as the Church, halls and recreation spaces. It is in the Church that you and your families have celebrated the sacraments of baptism, first communion, confirmation, marriage, and also painful moments such as funerals.
But we ask: “Who built these buildings which we a blessed to have for our spiritual needs?”
Just as we have benefited from the generosity of those who have come before, we too are “called to renew” our church, so that future generations may have a place to encounter God and to have fellowship with others.
I am pleased to inform you, that our parish is participating in the Called to Renew campaign. This campaign invites each of us to consider the many blessings which God has bestowed upon us and our parish. Our parish goal for this campaign is $1,155.000, of which fifty-percent of the goal will remain with our parish. And if we are fortunate to go over goal, 100% of funds raised above the goal will remain with our parish. I invite you to take a moment and read the following pages to learn how Called to Renew will benefit our parish and how we will use these funds.
To achieve our goal, I am asking each family to consider a generous pledge over five-years. This campaign is essential to keeping our church vibrant and strong, and to continue to be an important presence in the life of the community for many years to come.
I am hopeful for an optimistic and generous response of support for our Called to Renew campaign.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.
Our Parish Receives
To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.
Purchasing the land adjacent to our property will be the first phase. The
home across the street from the parish office, on the corner of Caffield
Avenue and Orchard Street, has become available, and the parish is
currently negotiating the purchase of this property.
Designing and then constructing the mini-coliseum will be the second phase. Our long-range plan will entail: Hiring an architect, securing city building permits, calculating project costs through consultation with structural and electrical engineers, seeking Archdiocesan approval of the plans, launching the second phase of our campaign to
raise funds for the construction of the mini-coliseum.
