Case for Support Breakdown Campaign Goal: $285,000



Living Our Mission is a capital campaign, which invites gifts to provide support, growth, and benefit to St. James, as well as the Catholic community throughout the Diocese of Richmond. The parish has been granted mission status for the campaign and allows us the opportunity to receive 2/3 of our $285,000 goal. The funds will be used to enhance our parish in the following ways:

Parish Share: $188,000

Restoring Our Sanctuary – $30,000

St. James will use the money raised through this campaign to begin the process of restoring the sanctuary to its original space. For Phase 1 of this project, the sanctuary will be restored to its original setting when the church was erected.

Church Renovations – $158,000

Remaining phases of the church restoration project will be carried out over time to ensure our plan is deliberate and conscientious to meet our needs, budget and desires.



The Living Our Mission Campaign is a wonderful opportunity to build the physical and spiritual structures of our parish, support future needs of the diocese and be a partner in our community to meet the needs of individuals and families.
