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 all to a period of renewal — a renewal of not only our resources, but a spiritual renewal as well. I am pleased to announce the launch of our parish’s Called to Renew campaign. This historic effort 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 $380,000, 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 $190,000 to address our own needs.
While our goal is above and beyond what we normally raise for St. Michael, our community is worthy of this incredible investment. Future generations will look back on our dedication to our parish’s legacy as an example to follow.
St. Michael has a rich history in Los Angeles. 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.
Please take a moment to prayerfully 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. This is a wonderful parish, and I am amazed at how our community always works together to meet needs that arise. 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, St. Michael.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.
Our Parish Receives
To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.
The roof protecting the interior of our spiritual home has now exceeded its life expectancy, and repairing sections is no longer cost-efficient. Replacing the roof will prevent future damage and eliminate the need for continuous repairs.
Our sound system is outdated, and many parishioners have difficulty hearing the Word of God. Installing a new sound system awill ensure all are able to participate during Mass.
Our pastoral center is an important gathering space for our community. Maintaining its functionality will benefit both our ministries and events. We will use the campaign funds to purchase televisions, DVD players, projection screens, projectors, new tables and chairs for the center.
