Growing More in Faith Campaign

 

December 2023 GMIF Campaign UPDATE!

We’ve Hit an Important Milestone! 
Thanks to the dedication and generosity of our parish community, I am delighted to announce that our campaign has reached a crucial milestone. We have met the diocesan requirement of 60% cash on hand, marking a significant step toward the construction of our new church home and the renovation of our current church into a Gathering Space. In the Spring of 2024, we will break ground, initiating a 15-month construction process.

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to the committee members, parish and finance council, and a retired volunteer professional fundraiser, whose expertise has been invaluable. Most importantly, I thank each one of you who has pledged funds and generously contributed to support the GMIF campaign and our parish.

More Fundraising Ahead for Our Total Goal.  
While we celebrate this remarkable achievement, there is still work to be done. Our total campaign goal is $12,000,000, and with current pledges and gifts, we are expecting $9,500,000 in campaign income. To furnish the new church and complete the Lower Level for various activities, including religious education and youth ministry programs, an additional $2.5 - $3 million will be needed.

Your support has been instrumental in bringing us to this point, and we are now turning to you once again to help us meet this financial goal. Every contribution, regardless of size, plays a crucial role in shaping the future of our parish and creating a space that will serve our community for generations to come. If you haven’t made a gift or pledge,  we invite you to join us on this exciting journey.

Parish Growth.
In addition to this wonderful news, I am pleased to share that our parish continues to grow, with 1,635 families now part of our community. This growth is a testament to the vibrant spirit of St. Thomas More Parish.

Blessings,
Fr. Chuck Adam
