Initial Commitment Weekend Results - March 25, 2018

Our commitment weekend gave us a great start to our “Uniting in the Light” Capital Campaign. So far 144 parishioners have pledged and made gifts totaling $779,269.  Of that pledge total $352,868.73 are gifts we have already received toward paying off the debt. This includes the $200,000 gift from Denise and Jack Coughlin. Denise and Jack designated the gift to be used for the debt before she died one year ago this Sunday. I am excited to join you in paying off our $1,046,000 loan first, then funding future major projects and adding to our reserve fund.

I am Joseph your brother, Fr. Joe Hannappel
