With the holiday having come and gone, the success of Upon This Rock never stops as St. Mary of the Assumption in Lancaster went over goal! Fr. Paul Steller is thrilled to report that the parish has raised $1,222,023, a total of 102% following their Commitment Weekends.
The unity of St. Mary is a sight to behold as an astounding 303 gifts were given by the parishioners. Those gifts will enable the parish to create a Deferred Maintenance Fund that will help preserve the parish for years to come. Fr. Steller would like to use the funds towards restoring the stained glass windows in the church, repairing the roof of the rectory and address the needs of the cemetery. Since the parish met its goal, 55% of all additional funds will be going back to its community.
Congratulations to Fr. Steller and everyone at St. Mary for making this campaign a success!
