Please Be Receptive to Our Campaign Volunteers

The One Faith – One Family – One Future campaign is underway, and the generosity of our faith community is apparent. We have already raised more than $11.26 million toward our goals for the new St. Joan of Arc Catholic School and the Upon This Rock capital campaign.

We would like to thank our staff and volunteers for their diligent work in getting us to this point. We also would like to thank our donors to date for their generosity. While there is much to celebrate, there is much work yet to do.

In the coming weeks, volunteers will reach out individually to members of our parish.  I ask that you please keep in mind the following:

  • Volunteers – Dual Donation

Our volunteers are just that – volunteers. They graciously agreed to donate their time and talent for the betterment of Our Lady of Lourdes and Saint John Vianney. They are serving in this role because they believe in our vision and are passionate about our parish’s future. Please treat them with respect and thank them for helping Our Lady of Lourdes and St. John Vianney in this important capacity.

  • Personal Touch

We have instructed our volunteers to personally meet with members of our faith community. If you receive a call, we kindly ask that you:

  • Take the call or return the message. Don’t avoid talking to our volunteers. It makes their job more difficult and puts them in a position where they must keep calling in an attempt to reach you.
  • Meet face-to-face. If you are asked to meet, please give our volunteers 15 minutes of your time. They are not trying to twist your arm. They just want to briefly explain the campaign goals, answer your questions and receive a decision about your participation.
  • Have your pledge card? Return It!

If you received a pledge card inside your packet of materials, you likely will not receive a call from a  a campaign volunteer. Please discern your involvement in the campaign, complete the card and return it in the envelope provided.

  • Your Gift Matters!

Remember, the letter you received from Fr. Rich and Fr. Jason includes a financial request. It is not an expectation. It is an invitation. I invite you to pray about this campaign and our parish. You may not be able to give what was asked. You may be able to give more than asked. Whatever your decision, please know that I deeply appreciate your commitment. It is a true blessing to our parish, and so are you!

Thank you for your cooperation, your consideration and your partnership in building for our future, our children’s future, and for generations to come.

P.S. If you weren’t at Mass last weekend, you missed seeing two informational and inspirational videos! Please  check them out on this campaign website!
