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 our Called to Renew at Our Lady of Victory. 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 affect us all.
Each parish has been given a goal for the campaign. Our goal is $500,000, of which 50 percent will remain at our parish. We will also retain 100 percent of the funds we collect over our goal. If our campaign is successful, we will receive a minimum of $250,000 to address our own needs.
Our Lady of Victory has a rich history in Compton, Called to Renew will ensure we can contribute to be a vital presence in our community. Details about how we plan to use or 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 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 has always worked together to meet 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 intercessions of our Blessed Mother and our patron, Our Lady of Victory.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.
Our Parish Receives
To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.
Church Renovations and Maintenance
It is time for us to restore our church with new painting and repairs to the windows and restrooms. We will also upgrade the security system.
Part of the funds will also go towards the general maintenance of the electricity, plumbing, roofing, and painting of the convent. We will also remodel the kitchens and bathrooms.
Renovations for the Parish Office
Depending on the time of year, the temperature in the religious education and finance office can get uncomfortable. We will install air conditioning systems to help moderate the temperature in these offices. We will also upgrade the security system, repair the roof, and paint.
Maintaining the Rectory
This campaign will also help maintain the rectory by repairing the leaking roof and repainting. New security cameras will also be installed in the surrounding streets and alleys.
