Our Parish Project
This year, $34,500 of our parish goal will be directed to the priorities of the Archdiocese and the remainder will be put towards offsetting increased tuition assistance, expenses around COVID-19 and paying down our parish debt incurred in the purchase of property for the development of a new parish centre.
Days left in our appeal
A word on Project Advance from
It has been good to see many of you at Mass over these past few months. I hope that returning for Mass has been a blessing for you and your family. We are working hard at St. Joseph’s to provide opportunities to celebrate our faith as a parish family. If you haven’t already followed our livestreamed Mass at 11:00 am on Sundays please do so. The beauty of this format is that you can watch it at any time. Since we are not able to see all our parishioners, I wanted to update you on this year’s Project Advance appeal.
Our Annual appeal raises funds for both needs within the Archdiocese and here in our local parish community. The Archdiocesan portion of the appeal focused on a Crisis Response Fund direct at supporting various Catholic organizations responding to the needs arising from COVID-19 in our Archdiocese.
The response has been great, and through this appeal and your generosity, our parish has already raised over $59,000.00 Because of this we have already reached the Archdiocesan goal of $34,000.00 All the funds received moving forward will fund our parish projects.
This year’s rebate will be put towards offsetting increased tuition assistance, expenses around COVID-19 and paying down our parish debt incurred in the purchase of property for the development of a new parish centre. Due to the pandemic we have had to keep our payment to a minimum in order to balance our books. Moving forward we realize that paying off the debt ASAP is crucial to being able to continue with our building plans.
