Case for Support Breakdown Campaign Goal: $29,000
Our parish will receive two-thirds of all the proceeds we receive up to our campaign goal of $29,000 and a bonus level of ninety percent of the funds raised over our goal. Here is how we intend to use our share:
Parish Share Up To Goal: $19,000
Case Element 1: Parish General Maintenance Fund – $12,000
Parish churches bring us together in the formation of a Catholic community to celebrate the Eucharist and build Christian fellowship with our friends and neighbors. Holy Spirit must meet future building maintenance needs in order to remain a safe and comfortable place of welcoming with such an important role in our faith life. Some anticipated maintenance needs include paving the parking lot / drive way and constructing a canopy over the outside stairs to the basement. Through the Living Our Mission campaign, we hope to raise $12,000 to establish a general maintenance fund to meet these and future needs.
Case Element 2: Continuing Support for Charity – $7,000
Serving people in need is at the core of our mission and identity. $7,000 of our parish share from the Living Our Mission campaign will be dedicated to a variety of local charitable causes.
The Living Our Mission campaign will enable the Trinity Cluster to maintain a Catholic presence in far southwest Virginia, providing a church family home for Catholics and all the good Appalachian people. Your generosity will enable this home mission area to continue to share the Catholic blessings of the Word and the Eucharist.Fr. Tim Drake
