Case for Support Breakdown Campaign Goal: $235,000
Our parish will receive two-thirds of all funds we receive up to our campaign goal of $235,000 and 90% of all money raised over the goal. Here is how we intend to use our share:
Parish Share: $157,000
Our efforts will focus on two areas of critical need, expanding our seating space by putting the altar back in its original position and creating a new visible facade to the building to serve as a visible welcome to members and guests. We anticipate the cost of these changes to be $500,000. The parish share of $157,000 plus the sale of a rectory no longer being used and a $250,000 grant from the Bishop should fully fund the project elements. The change will ensure we continue to have the space to welcome the highly diverse population that calls St.Gerard home.
St. Gerard’s has 70 years of history, serving the Gospel of Christ. Through the Living Our Mission Campaign, let’s make an investment in the future. May the Lord see us serving Him here for another 70 years, and beyond.Pastor Rev. Fr. Mark White ~ Parochial Vicar Rev. Fr. Matt Kiehl
