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.
These are exciting times for the Church in southern California! Archbishop Gomez has called us all to a period of renewal — a renewal of not only our resources, but a spiritual renewal as well. I am pleased to announce the launch of Our Lady of Perpetual Help’s Called to Renew campaign. This historic effort will provide much-needed funding for parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, including ours, as well as strengthen important ministries and programs that affect us all.
Each parish has been given a goal for the campaign. Our goal is $865,000, 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 $432,500 to address our own needs.
While our goal is above and beyond what we normally raise for Our Lady of Perpetual Help, our community is worthy of this incredible investment. Future generations will look back on our dedication to our parish’s legacy as an example to follow.
Our Lady of Perpetual Help has a rich history in Los Nietos. 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 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 needs that arise. 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, Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.
Our Parish Receives
To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.
Our parking lots provide a poor first impression of the parish. Resurfacing the church and Walnut Center parking lots will create a safer and more welcoming environment.
The exteriors of our church, parish hall, and parish offices have not been painted in many years. Repainting these buildings will allow us to make necessary repairs and protect them from the elements. We will also install new doors and locks on the church.
Walnut Center Restrooms
The Walnut Center restrooms are in need of upgrading. Remodeling these restrooms will make them accessible to all and more accommodating for School of Religion and Confirmation students as well as those who participate in ministries in this facility.
Our church patio is showing its age. Resurfacing or repainting the surface will restore its color and protect the patio from the elements.
