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.
Our parish continues to experience the blessings and goodness of God, thanks to your gracious and generous support of our Church. Now, we are called to renew our faith and commitment to the building and strengthening of our parish family.
We must continue working in the vineyard of the Lord to ensure our local Church remains strong and vibrant for future generations. To realize this vision, Our Lady of Guadalupe is participating in the Called to Renew campaign. I am excited to invite you to be a part of this initiative to strengthen the parishes and elevate the ministries of our Archdiocese.
By the grace of God, our parish continues to exist because of your support and generosity. I am amazed at how parishioners work together to meet needs that arise. Called to Renew gives us a tremendous opportunity to come together as an Archdiocesan family to serve our local Church alongside our brothers and sisters across Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, and Ventura counties. This is truly an extraordinary opportunity to live out our call to serve as His disciples!
Through Called to Renew, we will be able to address our parish’s most pressing needs. You can find details about these projects on the following page. Our parish’s goal is $880,000. Our parish will keep 50 percent of this goal for our own needs and 100 percent of what we collect over our goal.
Please take a moment to review the impact Called to Renew will have on our parish and across the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. This campaign has my full support. As your parish administrator, I hope you will embrace this opportunity for our parish.
