Campaign Update December 2019 God's Work Through Our Hands
As of November 30, 2019, pledges and one time donations to our God's Work Through Our Hands capital campaign have resulted in $882,738 pledged with $612,828.40 received and interest earned. This is a significant achievement as roughly 70 percent of the funds pledged have been collected to date.
Another huge milestone was met in early December when proposals from our liturgical consultant and architect for the interior renovations and narthex were submitted to the diocese for formal review the bishop, liturgy office and building commission. Although there is no set “time frame” for the diocese process, once approved our architect can begin developing detailed specifications so the project can be sent out for bids.
With 2019 rapidly coming to a close, if you haven't made a campaign pledge or donation – it's not too late. Forms are available at the church entrances and end of the pews and may be dropped in the collections basket or the parish office.
Thank you for your prayerful and financial support as well as your patience as the project draws ever closer to fruition. Please remember that sacrificial campaign pledges need to be over and above your regular weekly offering in order to ensure the ongoing success of our daily ministry. Thank you. In Christ,
Campaign Prayer All powerful Father, source of all beauty and truth, You have built the Church on the Apostles and have made your Son the unshakable cornerstone. We have discerned your will and You have blessed us with the means to become your co- workers in the Sacred Heart campus revitalization. Our desire is to spread your kingdom to all Catholics, former Catholics, and non-Catholics throughout Gladwin County. May the Holy Spirit guide our daily progress to its successful fruition as we joyfully and sacrificially do your work through our hands. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer of the Week O Lord our God, we know that you have planned for us more than we can ask for, or can even imagine. Quiet our fears and guide us in any concerns we may have, that we may know and experience the abundant life that our Savior Jesus Christ calls us to. Be with us as we make the commitments of sacrifice and effort which will lead us into paths you have placed before us. We ask this in the Holy Name of Jesus. Amen
