Excitement was in the air last Sunday at our campaign Kickoff for ADVANCING THE JOURNEY. It signifies the official start of the campaign activities. This first phase of “ADVANCING THE JOURNEY” is a critical Advance Gifts Phase.
Over 80 parishioners were in attendance and enjoyed the food, fun and fellowship. Parishioners listened as we presented more detailed information about our needs and our plans. A short video was shown, which is now available to be seen at the website: paxchristilex.org. It is a strong statement about our parish and our future hopes. In addition, Fr. Nick was asked and answered some questions about the campaign plans.
Now about 25 parishioner volunteers will be reaching out to you to explain what we are hoping to accomplish.
All parishioners are being asked personally to consider prayerfully special gifts to the campaign at a sacrificial level of 3 to 5 times their annual giving.
These requests will continue in phases through Commitment Weekend, December 17-18, 2016., when anyone who has not yet made a pledged will be asked to support our campaign.
Our parish goal is to secure 100% participation of all parishioners, “equal sacrifice, not equal gift.”
