We have come a long way in this last year! Much work has been done because of the generous response some families have had to our Capital Campaign. Out of the 1,500+ registered families in the Parish, just over 400 have contributed. We are grateful for their sense of need and caring for the By Faith We Build Campaign. Just think what we could do if we had 75% or even 50% participation of our parish families!
Many families are still fulfilling their pledges from the Capital Campaign. We are extremely thankful for the continued sacrifice they are making. There are families, due to a loss of job or some other unforeseen circumstances, who have fallen behind on their pledge. St. Mary borrowed funds from the diocese based on commitments made during the campaign. Please do your best to pick up where you left off or give what you can based on changed circumstances.
The physical work is mostly done (except for the Adoration Chapel) and we can rejoice in what we see accomplished. But we still have to cover the costs of this project and all the extras that were imposed (as you read a few weeks ago). Please continue to assist us in fulfilling our responsibilities and completing this project as “By Faith We Build.”
