Dear Disciple,
Twelve years ago we … as a Parish … undertook a critically needed structural renovation of our Church. We now have a Sacred Space of eep peace and reflection, serving to reinforce our faith, deepen our worship experience and strengthen our ministries. Those efforts also served to further unify our Parish as we continue working together for a common goal.

In the ensuing years, the St. Francis community has flourished and our ministries have continued to expand. Because of your commitment to Intentional Discipleship, our Parish has developed into a vibrant faith community.

With this growth, many of our ministries, especially those devoted to the education and guidance of our youth, faith formation of our adults, and community outreach, we have outgrown our existing footprint. As you may have noticed, this need for meeting and
classroom space has already encroached on the Parish Hall, limiting other Parish gatherings.

It is now time for all of us, full-time and seasonal Parishioners, to invest in the future of our Parish by “repurposing” our existing upper and lower levels by building additional multi-purpose space to answer the educational, ministry, and gathering needs of our
Parish.

Our capital campaign goal is $1.2 million. We can accomplish this with everyone’s participation.

I ask you to prayerfully consider a gift to our building fund. Please see enclosed pledge statement for frequency of payment. This pledge would be above and beyond your regular Sunday giving.

It is now time for all of us, year-rounder and part-timer, to continue our commitment and again invest in our Parish. This new project will be challenging, exciting and energizing to us all as we see this new growth develop and as we look to see what new opportunities God will bring to our Church. May God bless us all.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Bill
