The One Faith, One Family, One Parish Capital Campaign is underway. By now, everyone in our parish family should have received their pledge packet in the mail.

Thank you to our volunteers for working diligently to get us to this point. I also would like to thank our donors, in advance, for their generosity. While there is much to celebrate, much work remains to be done. In the coming weeks, volunteers will reach out individually to parishioners.

I ask that you please keep the following in mind:

Volunteers are giving a donation.

Our volunteers are just that – volunteers. They graciously agreed to donate their time and talent for the betterment of Saint Rose of Lima Catholic Church and School. They are serving in this role because they believe in our parish and are passionate about its future. Please treat them with respect and thank them for helping Saint Rose of Lima in this important capacity.

Personal Touch

I instructed our volunteers to personally meet with members of the parish community. If you receive a call, I kindly ask that you: Take the call or return the message. Please don’t avoid talking to our volunteers. It makes their job more difficult and puts them in a position where they must keep calling in an attempt to reach you. Meet face-to-face. If you are asked to meet, please give our volunteers 15 minutes of your time. They are not trying to twist your arm. They just want to briefly explain the campaign goals, answer your questions and receive a decision about your participation.

Have your pledge card? Please return It!

If you received a pledge card inside your packet of materials, you likely will not receive a call from a campaign volunteer. Please discern your involvement in the campaign, then complete the card and return it in the envelope provided.

Your Gift Matters!

Remember, the letter you received from me includes a financial request. It is not an expectation. It is an invitation. I invite you to pray for this campaign and our parish. You may not be able to give what was asked. You may be able to give more than asked. Whatever your decision, please know that I deeply appreciate your commitment. It is a true blessing to our parish, and so are you!

Thank you for your cooperation, your consideration and your support of Saint Rose of Lima Catholic Church and School!
