st-fran-graph

Our parish will receive two-thirds of all the proceeds we receive up to our campaign goal of $41,000 and a bonus level of ninety percent of the funds raised over our goal. Here is how we intend to use our share:

Case Element 1: Growth Fund – $4,000

We need to “grow the parish.” Physical signs are needed on the highways to let people know about our geographical location. Weekly notices and advertisements should be placed in the Lynchburg News and Advance and the Appomattox Times-Virginian.

Case Element 2: Continuing Education – $12,000

The Living Our Mission campaign will raise $12,000 for education materials, training for religious education teachers, and technological resources to help educate, guide and to link members of our faith community with their Catholic peers.

Case Element 3: Continuing Support for Charity – $11,000

Many come to our door each week for assistance with rent, fuel and food from Our Lady of Peace.In addition we support St. Anne’s Shares, a programwhich feeds hundreds of families. There is also Good Shepherd clothing exchange to assist those to dress with dignity.

God’s heart has a special place for the poor, so much that he himself became poor. (2Cor.8:9) The entire history of redemption is marked by the presence of the poor.
