GIFT CampaignGIFT campaign, 2011- 2016
Contribute to our exciting capital campaign, raising $12-million for parish, diocesan and wider church programs and ministries Through increased involvement and support, GIFT draws us together as one Church. As it builds on the positive results of the stewardship initiatives currently in practice, parishioners will develop a better understanding of our Church's ministries in parishes and in local communities as well as nationally and internationally. Ultimately, this experience will give far more to a parish than merely the dollars raised.
