In Celebration of 60 Years: A Fundraiser for the Future of Our Church

As you know, the 60th Anniversary celebration of our church began in May 2022. We had various celebrations including two special Masses, a parish picnic, and a Music Ministry concert. To make this anniversary a special event, we are planning to make much-needed improvements to our wonderful church. The initial projects we selected were based on the results of a parish survey in which so many of our parishioners participated.

To fund these projects, we are launching the “In Celebration of 60 Years, A Fundraiser For The Future of Our Church”, with the modest goal to raise at least $200,000. (This fundraiser is distinct from the Building, Repair, and Replacement Fund quarterly collection we had begun last year, which is intended for smaller routine maintenance needs.). This being our 60th Anniversary, please consider donating $60, or any multiple of 60, or whatever you can give to this cause. All the parishioners will be getting a letter with more details about this fundraiser.

Thank you.
