Case for Support Breakdown Campaign Goal: $69,000


St. Francis of Assisi Parish Case

Our parish will receive two-thirds of all the funds we receive up to our campaign goal of $69,000, and 90% of all money raised over our goal. Here is how we intend to use our share:

Parish Share Up To Goal: $46,000

Addressing Immediate Needs – Approx. $10,000

Through Living Our Mission our parish will be able to continue immediate improvements to our parish home. Among the immediate desires we will fund: installation of weather-resistance benches at the Stations of the Cross; installation of additional outside lighting for safety; purchase a new life-size nativity scene to continue provide a visual display of the real purpose of the season, and install speakers in the narthex of the church.

Preparing for Our Future – Approx. $36,000

All remaining funds will be placed in a special fund to provide seed money for future expansion, maintenance, and grounds needs of the parish. As our parish continues to evolve we must be prepared to act when the time is right. Considerations include: exploring need for expansion of the community space, addressing parking concerns, major maintenance to equipment such as HVAC, plumbing, roof, or electric, and, other emergency funding.



We are blessed to be a community with such strong love for our parish. Our efforts have created a welcoming place for all. Your support of Living Our Mission will help us address some immediate needs and prepare us for a vibrant future.
