Case for Support Breakdown Campaign Goal: $71,000
Sacred Heart Parish Case
Our parish will receive two thirds of all the funds we receive up to our campaign goal of $71,000 and 90% of all money raised over our goal. Here is how we intend to use our share:
Replenish and Grow Maintenance Fund
As Sacred Heart continues to serve the people of the greater Covington area, the church must continue to be cared for and kept in solid working order. Acutely aware that an unplanned for major repair could exceed the parish’s financial capacity, the people of Sacred Heart have through faithful stewardship have created and used a maintenance reserve to address its physical needs. Keeping with this historic fiscal stewardship the parish will use its portion of the Living Our Mission campaign to replenish and grow the maintenance fund. All $47,073 realized from a successful campaign will ensure Sacred Heart has the ability to respond to future needs, while sustaining its strong parish community.
There is a relatively small group of Catholics spread across southern Virginia. Together we have the responsibility of keeping our parish strong and meeting the collective needs of our Church. I ask that each family join with Bishop DiLorenzo and me in support of the Living Our Mission campaign and for all that it will accomplish throughout our diocese.Rev. Stephen McNally
