We did it!!
Thanks be to God!!
You know I am talking about the Capital Campaign, right?
$7.1 Million pledged!!!
Our in-pew weekend, had more than a million dollars pledged! Launching this campaign was why we picked the theme last year, “Nothing is Impossible with God.”
Pledges have come from all corners of the parish: Holy Cross Academy families, alumni, grandparents, retired parishioners, homeschoolers, alumni of Montfort academy, longtime residents of Fredericksburg and newcomers too!
Yes, the biggest beneficiary is our parish school. Yes, there is a great deal of work for the parish too. But that is how real generosity works, the entire parish stepping up and helping without each measuring what only benefits themselves directly!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
Yes, there are still some folks turning in pledges, and your generosity will be received with joy as well. All gifts are welcome and important! We are aware that some folks will not be able to fulfill a pledge because they move, change jobs, or go home to Jesus! A very good campaign will see 5% to 8% attrition on pledges, so the remaining incoming pledges will help buffer that attrition.
Also, if you want a memorial brick on our new Holy Cross Academy cafeteria wall, the deadline for making the required pledge will be the end of this year: December 31, 2023.
I am so grateful to the Lord for once again proving that with Him, all things are possible. Forget about recessions, forget about traffic on 95, forget about politics: and remember the wonderful works of the Lord!
Father John Mosimann
