I am excited to announce the beginning of our capital campaign to raise the funds needed to complete our parish master plan. You recently received a mailing to your home that outlined the reasons for this campaign and the strong support for it from parishioners who participated in the planning study. The Steier Group has been hired to manage the campaign for us and we have been working with them the past several weeks preparing for its launch.
The theme of the campaign is “Renewing Our Heritage.” I believe that this is a very appropriate theme as it recognizes the opportunity we have had to continue to grow in our faith because of the generosity of those who came before us. We can continue that tradition of generosity by being good stewards of our parish and doing our part to provide for its future.
Over the next few weeks you will be getting more information about the campaign and its importance to the future of St. Thomas More. As we make our preparations for this campaign, please pray with me for its success.
We give thanks to you, dear God, for the many labors, sacrifices, talents and gifts shared by those who have gone before us, making our parish what it is today. And in this important time, we ask you to guide and direct us to know what must be done, and gain the strength and wisdom to complete what we have begun. Instill in us a generous spirit. May we serve you in all things, and may you bless our efforts in Renewing Our Heritage here at St. Thomas More. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
– Msgr. Tom
