As active parish campaigns wind down, we celebrate the great achievement of raising more than $65,000,000 and share pictures from events throughout the Forward in Faith, Hope, and Love effort.
At St. Aloysius in Hickory, Father Bob Ferris shared the vision of Forward in Faith, Hope, and Love at a reception with more than 100 parishioners in attendance. At this event many families made commitments and generated momentum for St. Aloysius’ effort. The parish went over goal at the beginning of the year and continues to receive new donations.
St. Eugene hosted a parish wide kick-off event on May 14 to explain the Forward in Faith, Hope, and Love effort. One hundred and fourteen parishioners and school families were in attendance. The plans for additional classroom and ministry meeting space were shared, inspiring parishioners to commit $2,100,000 in pledged commitments.
Holy Family had an active volunteer team that made personal visits, held receptions, and made announcements at Mass. Pictured above is a group of volunteers and guests at one of the parish-wide receptions that was held to educate parishioners about the Forward in Faith, Hope, and Love effort. Thank you to all campaign volunteers who donated time, talent, and treasure to ensure the success of the campaign.
