Case for Support Breakdown Campaign Goal: $3,000,000
Element 1: Youth Room- $300,000
The funding received will allow for the creation of a dedicated teen space accommodating at least 40 people. It will give our teens a sense of ownership and open up opportunities for after school homework programs, post-confirmation faith sharing groups, and more.
Element 2: Music Rehearsal Space- $200,000
This dedicated music room will fulfill a desperate need for choir and instrumental rehearsal space, music and equipment storage, and music instruction space for young musicians.
Element 3: Advancing Catholic Education- $1,200,000
The Saint Edward the Confessor Educational Center is utilized on a daily basis by various groups who all promote the benefits and need for Catholic Education. Numerous improvements will be made to the structure of the Saint Edward the Confessor Educational Center including the installation of a new HVAC system, fire detection and alarm system as well as the replacement of the roof, windows and ceilings throughout the building.
Element 4: Ensuring the Future of the Holy Trinity Parish Cluster- $75,000
To expand on the established relationship between Saint Edward and the parishes of far Southwest Virginia, Saint Edward will ensure essential resources are available for the expansion of ministry and capital improvements for those parishes serving the communities of Jonesville, Big Stone Gap, Norton, and Clintwood in the Appalachia area of our Diocese.
Message from the Pastor
The Living Our Mission campaign invites us to rally together around our common mission as God’s people. Your faith-filled support and generosity will further enable the Richmond Diocese to provide structures, ministries and services that are vital to healthy parishes and allow our St. Edward community to advance its own mission and outreach. Please help us achieve our goal.Fr. Don
