Building Fund Capital Campaign

We have began our Building Fund Campaign to enhance our church and take care of some of the much needed improvements in our facilities.  In order for us to make this effort successful we must raise two million dollars. To meet our goal of two million dollars will require the support of every parishioner. We are encouraging each parishioner to make a pledge that will be paid over three years.  We realize that every family’s financial situation is different.  Therefore, we are asking that you pledge what your budget will allow.

From the Pastor,

Some parishioners have commented that they cannot afford to consider a 4,000 dollar pledge over three years.  I thank the many who have made such a pledge.  Some have been even more generous.  But if you cannot afford that amount, 100 dollars a month, a lesser amount such as 40 a month will be very helpful.  Any amount pledged over three years becomes a significant support.  I appreciate any donations as well.  I certainly understand the circumstances that may arise that prevent families from participating at this time.  However, we have been very successful with one in ten participating.  To achieve our goal we need MORE PARTICIPATION.  Let’s join in now.

Frequently Asked Questions About the Building Fund Capital Campaign

I was not here on Pledge Weekend. Can I still make a pledge?

Yes, you can still make a pledge. You may obtain a pledge form by contacting the Parish Office or after each weekend mass. We need your help.

Can I pledge less than $4,000?

Everyone is encouraged to make at least a $4,000 pledge, but we realize everyone’s financial situation is different. Therefore, if you cannot afford to make a $4,000 pledge, please pledge what your budget will permit. Our campaign is based on everyone making an equal sacrifice not equal giving.

When should I begin my monthly payments to the campaign?

You may begin immediately or when you are able. Please let the Parish Office know your plan.

Yes, you may.
