The Campaign Goal

The goal is to raise $ 2,200,000.00 over a three-year period from 2014 to 2017, now extended to 2018. The purpose of the Campaign is to fund upgrading and renewal of the church campus with specific emphasis on the church Hall and offices, and minor cosmetic improvements in the Church itself, bringing the Church Campus into the 21st Century. In addition, the amount includes the sum of $ 150,000.00 to fund the salary and benefits of an Administrative Assistant for the Church for three years, after which the Church will take over funding the cost of the Assistant from stewardship.

Campaign Data as of September 20, 2016:

  • Total Commitments  $1,900,350

  • Total Commitments Paid  $1,419,00 

  • Total Number of Households  116 

The General Assembly of May 4, 2015 set the following targets to be reached before the commencement of construction:

  • Total Commitments:  $1,500,000 (2/3 of the stated target goal of $2,200,000)

  • Total Commitments paid:  $726,000 (1/3 of the stated target goal of $2,200,000)

    Both hurdle requirements have been met. 

For new pledges, that would be between 2016 and 2018. Pledges may be accompanied by an initial donation toward the first year’s pledge, though remitting the entire first year’s pledge amount can be done later in the course of 2016 if preferred.   

The Campaign’s expenses to date include: assistance from the Archdiocese Development Office, architectural fees, production of solicitation materials, and event planning. These are in addition to salary & benefits for parish office support hired on in September 2014. The Campaign’s responsibility for seeding this office support expense terminates on October 1, 2017.

Inasmuch as funds are likely to be required on a regular basis once construction commences, the General Assembly gave the Campaign Committee the right to go to a bank and discount any unpaid pledge amounts in order to have funds available to meet expenses. 

Plans for the remodeling of the church Hall and offices are on display in the Hall.
