St. Eugene in Asheville surpassed the parish goal this week of $1,087,750! Over the last few months, Fr. Pat Cahill and ambassadors have been meeting with fellow parishioners to educate them on the Forward in Faith, Hope, and Love effort and the local project of building seven new classrooms at Asheville Catholic School. Fr. Pat will be sharing this initiative with the whole parish this week at their parish-wide kick-off.
Fr. Vincent Finnerty at Our Lady of Guadalupe in Charlotte hosted a successful Public Announcement last weekend. He was joined by more than 2,000 families at the parish who were excited about the parish’s plan to build a new sanctuary. In the coming weeks, families will have an opportunity to make a commitment during Mass through three back-to-back in-pew appeals.
Ambassadors at St. Thomas Aquinas in Charlotte have begun sharing the Forward in Faith, Hope and Love initiative with parish families. This week they welcomed their first gifts to the effort. St. Thomas Aquinas will be using their parish share to make improvements and enhancements to their sanctuary.
The Leadership Team at St. Matthew in Charlotte is excited about the progress of their campaign. On a recent visit with an Ambassador, a parishioner shared his inspiration to participate in this historic effort, “We talked for an hour and half about the diocesan growth and needs, the strategic objective of this campaign, St. Matthew, St. Matthew South, and so on. More importantly we talked about our faith, shared our life journeys, what we’ve experienced that served to grow and build our faith. He cares about his fellow men and women, both those he knows and those who would greatly benefit from knowing God and His Son. He believes deeply in the Catholic Church.”
Congratulations to Holy Spirit for surpassing the parish goal of $740,000! Thanks to the hard work of Fr. Carmen Malacari and the team of Ambassadors in Denver, the parish will now receive more than 50% of each additional pledge for the construction of a new Church!
Fr. Frank Seabo has been humbled by the generosity of his parish volunteers. At Holy Infant (Reidsville), every volunteer has made a sacrificial commitment to the campaign, bringing them to 28% of goal in just three weeks. Ambassadors look forward to inviting the entire parish to be involved to fulfill their dream of a new parish center.
