This weekend, we extend a special thank you to everyone who participated in the ADVANCING THE JOURNEY. Each of you supported the ADVANCING THE JOURNEY through your gift of time (prayer), talent (volunteering to help) and treasure (financial pledges). Those volunteering to help in various areas of our campaign were invited to celebrate on January 31st and were presented a check for $1,140,839 representing the pledges made for our campaign. We have received $278,656.66 in payments toward those pledges.
Special thanks to Lynn Mellott who stepped up as our Capital Campaign Administrative Assistant at the last minute!!! A regular volunteer in our office and just retiring from the Postal Service looking forward to having free time to spend with her husband, she agreed to take on the temporary position to see us through the Campaign period. Well done good and faithful servant!
But you know, even though we are celebrating our successes, it’s not over… volunteers continue to be needed to reach out to those in our parish who have not yet been able to turn in a pledge card. As a volunteer, Lynn will continue to help us track pledges/payments and new pledges. We have a goal for this campaign of $2.5 million in order to do the first phase of our renovation & expansion project. Join in the celebration by making your pledge today!
