When will the work begin?
The work will begin as the funds become available from the Capital Campaign. The new heating and A/C equipment would be installed during their “offseason”.
What will happen if we go over our goal?
All gifts collected after we exceed our goal will be put towards the maintenance and upkeep of our facilities or other parish projects from the advice of the finance and pastoral councils.
What if I never make a pledge?
Most people take advantage of time-payments for major purchases. A pledge to the parish Capital Campaign is a “time-payment plan” that makes it possible for you to meet your parish obligations without undue hardship. Although help is appreciated during any point of the projects, pledges enable you to consider a more significant contribution to the campaign rather than a one-time gift.
Is my pledge over and above my Sunday Offering?
Yes. We can only reach our goal with a little extra sacrifice. We cannot reach our goal if we reduce our weekly offerings in order to make a pledge to the Capital Campaign. The parish will continue to have normal operating expenses during the pledge period.
Who will be asked to support the Campaign?
Each member of our parish family will be asked to consider a significant gift for this major effort according to his or her financial ability. We will make a special appeal to all who have been blessed by the Lord with exceptional earning ability or have been able to accumulate some assets. We hope everyone will play a conscientious role in renewing the future of the parish.
What happens if I cannot fulfill my pledge?
Pledges are made in good faith and accepted as such. If hardship or illness prevents you from fulfilling your pledge, let the parish know, and other arrangements will be made.
Love can do all things. The most impossible tasks seem to it easy and sweet. You know well that Our Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, nor even at their difficulty, as at the love with which we do them. What, then, have we to fear?- Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, the little flower. Letter to Celine, October 20, 1888
