MPB Capital Campaign Update | May 2017
As we consider the Archbishop’s Appeal, you may be wondering how we’re doing with our parish campaign.
Less than a year ago we launched the Here for Good Capital Campaign to provide much-needed meeting, event and administrative space for the parish, as well as to address deferred maintenance projects. We are a growing, lively and thriving community – rich in faith and charity. Our vision is to improve our parish community by expanding programming, enhancing spiritual opportunities and increasing outreach.
I’m pleased to share that through your generosity and the hard work of many volunteers, we have raised $6.2 million! Just under half of our parishioners have contributed. Thank you for your generosity and all you have done to advance our efforts to improve our ministry and parish community. Yet we still have work to do to finish the campaign.
As our fundraising progressed, we engaged in a competitive search process for an architectural firm and selected JP Architecture, a company with 32 years of Catholic architectural experience. We will begin interviewing construction firms this month.
It’s great to see our progress, but we remain focused on reaching our goal and finishing the campaign. We still hope to raise $2.8 million to do so. We are continuing our efforts and we hope we can count on you to help us succeed. If you have not already contributed, you can find ways to do so on our website or by contacting the office. The final stages of the fundraising campaign are critical to ensuring we can achieve our vision of an improved parish center and administrative space.
We will provide you updates on progress in the bulletin and through social media in the coming weeks and months. We have re-energized our efforts as we enter the home stretch of the campaign. While our contract with the fundraising firm The Steier Group has expired, we are pleased to be able to call on the expertise of a member of our parish who has more than 20 years of local fundraising experience to help us in the home stretch.
Thank you, once more, for your generosity.
– Fr. Pat
