The Legacy of Hope is a diocesan capital campaign whose goal
is to raise $32,000,000 to fund vital, long-term needs for a more
secure future for our diocese and its parishes.
Our parish target is: $279,358.00 40% of every dollar raised
up to the parish target will stay at the parish for our own projects.
For every dollar raised above the parish target, 60% will be
returned to the parish.
What will we do with the monies returned to the parish?
Those who came before us built, maintained and repaired
this church and other parish buildings as their legacy to us. Now
it is our turn. We have the chance, through this campaign, to do
the same for those who come after us. This campaign offers us
an opportunity to help our church by creating a real vision of the
future. Our plan for the monies returned to our parish include:
·air conditioning for the church
• repairs to the gym roof to maintain the vitality of the building
• repairs to the parking lot that will help with insurance and the
safety of our parishioners and visitors
• updating and repairs to our church building with a general
maintenance fund for sudden or unexpected expenses including
HVAC, plumbing, roofing and other church or rectory equipment.
Our Commitment weekend is June 12th and 13th
MEDITATION OF THE DAY "If, then, we wish to persevere and to be saved—for no one can be saved without perseverance—we must pray continually. Our perseverance depends, not on one grace, but on a thousand helps which we hope to obtain from God during our whole lives, that we may be preserved in his grace. Now, to this chain of graces a chain of prayers on our part must correspond: without these prayers, God ordinarily does not grant his graces. If we neglect to pray, and thus break the chain of prayers, the chain of graces shall also be broken, and we shall lose the grace of perseverance."
— St. Alphonsus Liguori
VERSE OF THE DAY "And this is the verdict, that the light came into the world, but people preferred darkness to light, because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come toward the light, so that his works might not be exposed. But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God."
