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.
In 1963, our parish began with a handful of families who sacrificed to help establish Saint Euphrasia Parish. We are grateful and celebrate the legacy they left us. We have grown into a vibrant, active, dynamic parish from that handful of families.
We now join the Called to Renew campaign already begun by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. In doing so, we are united with every parish in the Archdiocese.
We benefit from the generosity of those who came before us. We now continue the call to renew our Church at this present moment and ensure future generations can worship, encounter Christ, and continue to care for those in need.
Each parish has a goal for the campaign. Our goal is $855,000, of which 50 percent will remain at our parish. We also retain 100 percent of the funds we collect over our goal. If our campaign is successful, we will receive a minimum of $427,500 to address our own needs.
Saint Euphrasia has a rich history in Granada Hills. 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.
May I ask you to pray and 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. 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, Saint Euphrasia.
