A Final Word from Fr. Flynn regarding the Capital Campaign and Pledges
While the official ‘active’ phase of the campaign ended a few months ago, the drive to raise funding to meet our goals continues. In no way should anyone think or believe that the vision and plans for the future of this parish that I proposed will not now be followed through due to my departure. Your pledge and commitment to the campaign is not for me or ‘my plans’; it is for the parish of St. Francis Assisi.
If you have made a pledge, I ask that you please hold true to that commitment and follow through by completing it. If you have been undecided about your commitment, I encourage you to prayerfully consider how you can make a difference for your faith family and help shape our future by joining those who have committed and make a gift that is sacrificial and meaningful to you. To date, parishioners have committed more than $3.5 million in gifts and pledges to our effort to obtain the $4.5 million Challenge Goal. Even though the official active phase of the campaign has ended, volunteers continue to reach out for support to members who remain undecided and to families new to the parish in a continuous effort to raise the funding to meet our goals.
The initial contracts for the project have been signed and we anticipate the initial phase of construction to begin as projected in late Spring. I will continue to pray for the success of Our Family, Our Faith, Our Future with the knowledge of the generosity and love for the Church that drives so many of our members and with the hope that many more will choose to invest in our Church.
May God continue to bless you and thanks again for your faithfulness and devotion.
Fr. James Flynn
