Next Step Project
May 3, 2018 Message from the Committee
Dear Fellow Parishioners,
In 2014 we embarked on a project to further improve our parish campus with the Next Step Campaign. Thanks to you, we were able to expand our buildings, extend our outreach, and grow our parish.
Our membership has increased by 335 families (25%) and 915 members (28%). School enrollment is up by 10%. We have done so much more than lay bricks and new flooring, so much more than add additional space. Our facilities are beautiful and larger, but the real results of our project are the growth and new faith formation, education, and outreach offerings for our parish community.
As we have experienced this growth, we have been able to pay back all but approximately $600,000 of our $2.78 million loan from the Archdiocese. Since we are approaching the June 30 end of our initial campaign, we want to emphasize the impact of your support. Click on our new one-minute video and our recent bulletin insert below for highlights of our improvements, benefits, and new opportunities.
We thank you for your prayers and contributions. If you are interested in extending your pledge or making a new pledge or donation in any amount, contact Regena Huffman in the Parish Office at 319.266.3523 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Every gift puts us closer to our financial goal.
Thank you again for your continued support and involvement which make Saint Patrick the great parish that it is today. Watch the bulletin for financial updates as, with your help, we complete what we set out to do.
