CAPITAL CAMPAIGN UPDATE - Last weekend marked the official start
of the Sustaining Hope for the Future campaign. Please prayerfully
consider a three-year pledge to the campaign. Our parish goal is
$808,167 over three years. The Diocese will receive 60% and our parish
40% of all funds received up to our goal. Campaign proceeds received
after our goal is met will be 60% for our parish and 40% for our Diocese.
The Sustaining Hope for the Future campaign is a great opportunity for
our parish to address our needs and the diocesan needs. Please review
the campaign material, pray about your response and continue to spread
the positive message about this important effort.

late October, it is important that requests be received by October 15,
