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.
It is with immense joy and heartfelt gratitude that I announce the launch of St. Joseph Parish’s campaign in conjunction with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles’ Called to Renew effort. This campaign will provide much-needed funding for parishes throughout the Archdiocese, including ours.
Each parish has been given a goal for the campaign. Our goal is $195,000, of which 50 percent will remain at St. Joseph. We will also retain 100 percent of the funds we collect over our goal. If our campaign is successful, we will have $97,500 to address our own needs.
St. Joseph has a rich history of service in downtown Los Angeles. Called to Renew will allow us to continue to be a vital presence in our community. You will find details about how we plan to use our share of campaign funds on the following page.
As your pastor, I invite you to take a moment in prayer to discern how you can best 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.
St. Joseph is a wonderful faith community, and I am very fortunate to be your pastor. 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. Joseph.
Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.

Air Conditioning & Heating
The air conditioning system in our church was installed more than 30 years ago and has
passed its useful life expectancy. At various times of the year, the temperature can make
Mass and other activities uncomfortable. Installing a new energy-efficient HVAC system will
help moderate the temperature and improve our worship experience.
The parking lot gives guests a poor first impression of our campus and is frustrating for
parishioners to negotiate. Filling in the potholes and cracks and completely resurfacing the
parking lot will create a more welcoming and safe environment.
