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 to renewal — not only a renewal of resources, but a spiritual renewal as well. I am pleased to announce our parish’s participation in the Called to Renew campaign. This historic effort will provide much-needed funding for parishes throughout the Archdiocese, including Saint Madeleine.
Saint Madeleine has a rich history of service in Pomona. Called to Renew will allow us to continue to be a vital presence in our community. Please take a moment to review this brochure to learn more about how this campaign will benefit our parish and other parishes throughout the Archdiocese.
As your pastor, I invite you to take a moment in prayer to discern how you can best support this campaign. I also encourage you to consider making a pledge over a five-year period. This will allow us the best opportunity to reach our goal. This is a wonderful parish and faith community, and I assure you that I am very fortunate to be your pastor. I know you will do whatever you can to make this campaign a success.
We entrust this campaign to the intercessions of our Blessed Mother and our patron Saint Madeleine Sophia Barat.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.
