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.
Archbishop Gomez has called us all to a period of renewal — time has come to announce the launch of our parish’s Called to Renew campaign. This historic effort will provide much-needed funding for the Church of Los Angeles.
Each parish has been given a goal for the campaign. Our goal is $465,000, of which 50 percent will remain at our parish. 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 $232,500 to address our own needs.
St. Paul of the Cross has a rich history in La Mirada. Called to Renew will help us to 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. A five-year pledge from our parishioners 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. Paul of the Cross.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.
Our Parish Receives
To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.
Renovate the Floor of the Sanctuary
The sanctuary floor currently creaks and can use an upgrade in structure and beauty. With the funds from Called to Renew we will replace the carpet floors with wood or tile flooring that will enhance the beauty of the sanctuary.
Renovate the Confessionals
The confessionals need to be renovated to restore them to beauty and make them more accommodating for our parishioners.
Renovate the Restrooms
St. Paul of the Cross is a beautiful parish, but the restrooms often leave a negative impression. The funds raised from Called to Renew will allow us the opportunity to fix the parish restrooms so that they leave a positive impression on our parishioners and visiting guests.
