A Reflection from Father King
As I noted last week, our A Vision of Our Future campaign is coming to an end this month. This time three years ago, you had pledged $1,052,645 and $1,019,936 has been paid of those pledges. That makes a fulfilment rate of 96%. We had been told that if 90% of the pledges were fulfilled we could declare the campaign a success. We have far exceeded that goal. So, I would again like to congratulate all of you for your generosity in following through on what you had pledged. I also wish to thank those of you who have decided to continue contributing to the campaign despite having already fulfilled what you had initially pledged – I wish to thank you for your commitment to the parish. I wish to thank the Parish Society for its contribution of $48,500 over the past three years through the different parish events hosted during this time – this amount allowed us to exceed our original pledge amount.
Erasing our debt will allow the parish to carry out our normal operations and to build up reserves that will be needed in the future to maintain and repair our facilities. In the near future the church will be connected to the city sewer system; we also expect that furnaces in the hall will require replacement in the coming years. Beyond that there will be needed repairs or improvements to the external walls of the parish hall, our church and hall lighting, as well as roofing repairs, etc. By eradicating our debt, we will be able to prepare for those eventualities. It will also mean that we can dedicate important resources to the parish’s principal tasks which are that of preaching the Gospel – of evangelizing and teaching our children, youth, and adults so that each one of us can more faithfully follow Christ in His Catholic Church in this midst of this secularized world; of worshipping Christ in our liturgy and prayer; as well as more effectively serving those who are in need in our community and beyond.
Therefore, I would like again to ask you consider continuing the contributions you had been making during the course of the campaign. Again, if you are new to the parish or had made a one-time contribution, I would like to ask you to consider making a contribution. If we do this there is a very strong possibility that we will be able to erase the debt between September and December. I hope that you will give this due consideration as we are so close to bringing our parish debt to an end.
