This weekend is “commitment weekend” for our diocesan capital campaign. A few weeks ago we watched the promotional video at Mass to hear about the good things that are going on around the state. The weekend before last, we heard fellow parishioners speak about what we are going to do with our share of the returns (put a forced air system in the church to waylay water leakage and renovate the interior of the church.)
This weekend, I would like you to consider making your pledge to the campaign. Be assured that none of this “goes to the bishop”, but it is all used for worthy and good causes. So far, only 15 parishioners have made pledges and we are already up to $69,000 raised of the $476,300 goal. The average pledge has been $3,000 over a 4-year period (which is what I have pledged myself).
You can fill out the pledge cards in your pews and put them in the collection basket or if you need more time, you can place them in the boxes at the doors of the church. These boxes will be out this weekend and next weekend.
I truly thank you for your patience, understanding, support, and generosity during this process. Please know of my profound gratitude to you!
In the Risen Christ,
PS: Today is the last official day of Easter! Alleluia!
