Phase III of our planned parish-building finance process is upon us.
With this campaign we intend to honor our commitment to the mortgage-holder and bring down, or possibly eliminate, our debt for the cost of building our initial parish infrastructure - the facilities currently serving our community. Further, we seek to honor our commitment to one another and the community-yet-to-come by safeguarding our current ministries and making future growth possible.
We are looking to each individual and household making Corpus Christi a part of their faith journey to contribute to the best of their ability in recognition and support of what this parish makes possible. This is one important way we fulfill our obligation to coming generations - by making a vibrant faith community possible into the future.
Our goal is to raise pledges that will result in at least $2-million for the capital needs of the community over the coming five years. This renewed pledge drive is necessary now that the first two phases of capital contribution have been completed. Our total debt has already been paid down to $2.8-million. Success in this campaign will put us in very close proximity to becoming debt-free. New pledges from this present effort will maintain the financial strength we’ve built and must maintain in order to prudently serve future needs of the community.
We seek these gifts and pledges specifically for capital needs so that our other income, the regular donations of our community, can be reliably used to improve the quality and grow the scope of our many ministries including: faith formation for children, youth and adults; meaningful liturgical prayer for the community; sacramental preparation; strengthening the bonds, socially and spiritually, within our faith community; reaching out to those in need; and many more.
