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 1948, when a handful of families sacrificed to establish Saint Lucy Parish, they also blessed us with a legacy to build upon and celebrate.
Through God’s grace, we have grown from a small faith community into a welcoming parish where we have created a vibrant, active, and dynamic place for people of all ages to grow in their faith, serve others, and share the Good News as they connect with Christ, one another, and those in need.
We are now launching the Called to Renew campaign alongside every parish in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and ask God to bless this ambitious effort. Our campaign will allow us to address the needs of Saint Lucy Parish ensuring future generations of parishioners may continue to gather, worship, and create lasting friendships.
The goal for our campaign is $300,000, of which 50 percent will remain at our parish to address the needs detailed on the following page. 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 $100,000 to address our own needs.
I am asking you, and every member of our parish, to make a gift from the heart. As your pastor and fellow parishioner, I will also make a sacrificial pledge. Before you determine your pledge, please prayerfully consider the generosity God has shown you, and the importance of the mission we have been given at Saint Lucy Parish.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.
Our Parish Receives
To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.
It is time for us to restore the beauty and luster of our church by repairing leaks in the roof, painting areas of the interior, restoring church doors and repairing AC ducts to improve air quality and air flow. The temperature in the church can get uncomfortable therefore we will install a new HVAC system to help moderate the temperature to make our worship experience more comfortable.
The parking lot is the first thing people see when they arrive on campus. We will use part of our Called to Renew funds to resurface the parking lot and install motors to the parking lot gates allowing gate automation. These enhancements will create a more welcoming environment, optimize safety, expand privacy, and improve curb appeal.
Over time, our Bell Tower has become worn and fragile, and it’s time to restore its functionality. We will service and update bell equipment to ensure a structurally safe tower and enhance sound quality.
Parish Halls Kitchen
The kitchen located in the parish halls is used regularly by our parish groups and has become dated and less efficient. With the use of funds from Called to Renew, we will renovate the kitchen to increase its efficiency by installing a new stove and countertop and install new cabinetry and flooring.
Depending on the time of year and the number of families occupying our parish halls, the inside temperature can become uncomfortable. We will install a new HVAC system in each of our parish halls to help moderate the temperature enhancing our fellowship experience.
