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.
As an active and faith-filled parishioner, you are aware of the many blessings we have to be grateful for at Our Lady of the Rosary Parish. Your family has likely celebrated many rites of passage here, such as Baptism and First Holy Communion. You may have exchanged wedding vows in our church or bid farewell to a loved one in the comfort of your spiritual home. Truly, our parish plays a vital role throughout our lives. But have you ever stopped to reflect on who is responsible for all we enjoy and use today?
Just as we now benefit from the generosity of those who came before us, we, too, are “called to renew” our Church to ensure future generations have a place to encounter Christ.
I am pleased to announce the launch of our parish’s Called to Renew Campaign and invite you to consider God’s many blessings in your life, our parish, and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.
Each parish has been given a goal for the Campaign. Our goal is $475,000, 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 $237,500 to address our own needs.
Please take a moment to read on the following page how Called to Renew will benefit Our Lady of the Rosary, and how we will use our share of Campaign funds. I then ask you to prayerfully consider a five-year pledge to the Campaign, which will allow us the best opportunity to reach our goal.
I realize this request is significant but trust your commitment to our parish, the Paramount community, and our Catholic faith will guide you to make a sacrificial gift. Called to Renew is essential to ensuring our Church is vibrant and healthy, and our parish remains a presence in the lives of parishioners and the community for years to come.
I hope you will join me in supporting this historic Campaign.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.
Our Parish Receives
To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.
The sanctuary of our church was never fully completed. Redoing the walls with marble and installing a new marble lectern, baptismal font, and altar will enrich our worship experience and better highlight the beauty that abounds in our Catholic liturgy.
Parish Offices and Convent
Our parish offices are often crowded and busy. Transforming the front part of the convent into additional office space will allow us to serve all parishioners professionally. We will also upgrade the remainder of the convent for our Sisters, as it has not received major renovations since the 1950s.
Blessed Sacrament Chapel
The room we have designated as a chapel for the Blessed Sacrament is in need of beautification. Painting the walls and installing a new tabernacle, pews, and lighting will provide us with a dignified space for prayer and adoration in front of the Blessed Sacrament.
The sacristy has not been renovated since its construction in the 1950s. We will completely renovate this important space, including new furniture.
