Our Future

Together We Grow Capital Campaign 2017-2020

We are in the final year of our 3-year campaign, Together We Grow! Pledges are still being paid; some have completed their pledge and others have exceeded their pledge. Others are planning to continue the giving once this initial campaign is complete. And others are still discerning. We give because of our relationship with God, who gives us everything. It is in gratitude for the gifts He gives us that we share our blessings with others. THANK YOU for continuing to take care of one another through the giving and sharing of your gifts. Jesus individually speaks to us when He says, “What you do for these, the least of My brethren, you do for Me.”

When we share our presence, our prayers, our gifts, and our service, we continue Christ’s mission, transforming the world one person at a time.

Diocesan Gift Explanation

Raising funds to build and renovate a church is a huge undertaking, one that we must put our trust in God to accomplish. He never promised us an easy journey, but He did promise to be with us. And we will not perish…we will be okay.
Read Fr. Phil’s explanation of the diocesan gift and what we, as a parish, must do to move forward.

 


Our New Sign and Logo

With the anticipation of an expanded and renovated worship and classroom space, Holy Family staff began discussion of also refreshing the parish’s logo. A call was put out to parishioners for their ideas of what a new Holy Family logo should embody. Several excellent ideas and images were submitted and created by many talented parishioners.

The staff used these ideas and designs to create a master list, describing the look and feel of the parish. This included conveying our truly family-like feel, welcoming all who walk through our doors. Taking inspiration from our parish statement, we wanted a logo that expressed our “vibrant, spirit-filled faith community” that can grow with the parish as it celebrates, growing and living in its faith.

 

Working with a graphic designer, communications coordinator Megan Cleveland, along with the entire parish staff, took the inspiration of the parish to produce an image of the Holy Family that represents the warm, welcoming spirit held within our parish, while remaining timeless as the parish continues to thrive well into the future.


Several amenities have been placed on a “Wish List” as we focus on primary construction needs. Other items, while included in the core budget, may be of special interest to parishioners who may want to make an extraordinary campaign gift.

Please know that pledges to the “Wish List” items would be gifts above and beyond an annual tithe and current campaign gift. Unless an item is underwritten in total, all gifts will be designed to the General Wish List Fund. The individual projects will then be completed as accumulated funding allows.

Click here to learn about each of the “Wish List” items and discern how best you may be able contribute to these items.


We are happy to report that our campaign pledges and diocesan gift brings our total to: $2,359,750.

Thank you to everyone who contributed and pledged. If you have not began making contributions to the Together We Grow Campaign, we ask that you prayerfully consider what sacrifice you can make. It will cost $8.3 million to pay off our expansion and renovation, so anything you are able to contribute will greatly help with our debt. We are excited about our future and look forward to being able to serve our community for many years to come.

Come On Holy Spirit!
