Needs of the Church and Parish Campus
The projects I described over the past few weeks will cost more money than we have available. We will need a special effort to make the much needed repairs, replacements and renovations. We will have to raise these needed funds through a capital campaign. Just as I have looked to the talents of parishioners to professionally assess our parish infrastructure needs, other parishioners have come forward to pledge contributions over 3 to 5 years, so we can make these needed improvements. I am grateful and encouraged by this quite early effort. However, it is not nearly enough. Our campaign effort will require the entire parish community to be part of the solution. I will talk about the Renew, Preserve and Grow Campaign next week.
