Case for Support Breakdown Campaign Goal: $120,000
Holy Family Parish Case
Since Holy Family Parish was established in 2010, the Catholic faith has consistently been sustained and strengthened in the Appalachian Region thanks to the commitment of the parishioners in each of the four original churches of which it is comprised namely; St. Elizabeth’s, St. Mary’s, St. Theresa’s, and St. Joseph’s. Holy Family Parish, as it is today, reflects the rich heritage of many divergent cultures and economic resources, yet we are truly one in faith and in the family of Christ.
Parish Share Up To Goal: $80,000
Rectory Construction and Maintenance, $80,000
Today, the parish has four church buildings, one at each of the four locations, the parish office, a temporary parish rectory in Tazewell, and a religious education building and an Outreach building in Richlands. Although the above facilities have been very useful locations for nourishing the Catholic faith in the Appalachian region over the past years, some of them are in need of urgent repair and maintenance. In order to plan for the growth potential of our parish, we are called to address the immediate infrastructural needs.
In order to help us meet the above needs, the Diocese of Richmond is inviting us to participate in the Living Our Mission Campaign for the next five years. As part of our participation in that Campaign, Holy Family Parish will raise in excess of $120,000 of which $80,000 will be used for the maintenance of our existing facilities and the construction of a new rectory in Tazewell. Our goal is to maintain the available facilities for worship, social activities, opportunities for learning & training, and meeting space and to finance the construction of a new rectory for our priests who meet our spiritual needs.
The Living our Mission Campaign is our way of responding to God’s call to share our gifts of time, talent and treasure. As stewards of God’s many gifts, you are asked to support this important campaign through your prayers as well for “Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build.” (Psalm 127)Fr.
