One Faith – One Family – One Future Capital Campaign kicks off!
Sept. 9-10 marks the official kick of our One Faith – One Family – One Future capital campaign! Information packets for every family in our parish and school communities (apart from volunteers and others who made early pledges) are being made available after Masses this weekend. Any packets remaining after this weeked will be mailed to households.
The packets will include a case statement and a request for a financial gift to the campaign. As grateful as we are for some major gifts we’ve already received, please know that participation is crucial also. We want everyone to participate at whatever level you can. This is a parish-wide project, and it will take gifts of all sizes to reach our goal!
Also, some of the packets will include a pledge card and return envelope. Others will not. If yours doesn’t, you will be contacted soon by a campaign volunteer – we’re calling them “ambassadors” – to set up a personal visit. PLEASE welcome whoever contacts you and set up a time to visit with them. It will take only a short time. I have asked them to make these visits, and I would appreciate you making time for them.
Of course, we’d love to visit with every one of you personally about your gift to share the plans in more detail and answer your questions. We only have so many volunteers, and they’ve selected as many households as they can manage to visit between now and the end of the campaign in January.
When you get your request letter, know that the amount requested is NOT an expectation. It is an invitation to participate at whatever level you can. You know your situation best, and we will be grateful for whatever you prayerfully decide to do.
