Mercy’s Campaign Formally Begins Today!
Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church is proud to announce the inauguration of the Traditions for Tomorrow Capital Campaign. This campaign will raise funds for the most pressing elements of our Master Plan.
FIFTY YEARS AGO, Monsignor Frey led a community campaign to raise funds for a new Church Sanctuary. Many of you may also remember the campaign 25 years ago conducted by Fr. Moroney for a modest expansion of the school. As our community and surrounding area continue to experience positive growth, it is time once again to launch a Capital Campaign to support our growing needs, continuing with the traditions of Our Lady of Mercy’s role as a treasure of Sacramental life and grace.
KEY COMPONENTS of the expansion include a new Gym and Early Childhood Center for our students as well as a new Mercy Ministry Office. Furthermore, we plan on re-purposing the current office space to better accommodate a variety of ministries and for the improved accessibility and safety of our campus. It is an exciting time for our parish family!
OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF MONTHS, you will receive information about the campaign from the pulpit, through the mail, in the bulletin, at campaign receptions and from your fellow parishioners. We ask that everyone give their fullest attention and cooperation to the efforts of the campaign.
DURING THIS CAMPAIGN, taking place in the Jubilee Year of Mercy, all parishioners will be asked to offer their true sacrificial gifts of stewardship and prayer in order to ensure our success.
All Parishioners will be invited to a
IN THE COMING WEEKS, every Mercy family will receive an invitation to attend one of a series of campaign receptions. At these receptions, Fr. Cleo and members of the Campaign Committee will be on hand to discuss the various needs of our parish and how we, as a parish family, will address these needs. This is your opportunity to learn firsthand about the campaign, ask questions, receive your campaign materials and meet with your fellow parishioners.
BECAUSE THIS IS AN IMPORTANT TIME in the life of our parish community, we ask that all parishioners take the time to attend a reception. Invitations will continue to be mailed over the coming weeks. Please RSVP as soon as possible so that we can plan for your attendance. Thank you! Our Lady of Mercy, pray for us!
THIS IS RECRUITMENT WEEKEND!
As will be explained during Mass, this weekend is Volunteer Recruitment Weekend for the Traditions for Tomorrow Capital Campaign. Over the coming months, we will be reaching out to every parish family to spread the word about the campaign. We need your time and talent to be successful.
With a parish of our size, we need many volunteers to assist with phone calls, receptions, visiting fellow parishioners, and preparing mailings. The more people we have involved, the easier our task will be! We need your enthusiasm to help get others involved! Do you want to make new friends and help strengthen our parish? Sign up today and simply return the card found in your pew in the offertory basket or to the office as soon as possible!
