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 St. Aloysius Gonzaga. Your family has likely celebrated many rites of passage here, such as Baptism and First 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 worship and 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 $315,000, 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 $157,500 to address our own needs.
Please take a moment to read on the following page how Called to Renew will benefit St. Aloysius Gonzaga. 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 San Pedro 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.
Faith Formation Programs
We will invest a portion of our campaign funds to grow our Faith Formation and strengthen our evangelization efforts. This will provide our Catechist’s with adequate training and grow our Religious Education Program.
Our sound system is outdated, and many parishioners often have difficulty hearing the Word of God. Installing a new sound system will ensure that all are able to participate during Mass.
Our ministries bring the word of God into our community by building relationships through outreach. Remodeling the parish hall kitchen and installing a sink and stove under the patio for our Sunday bake sales will further support the mission and growth of our ministries.
