A Stellar Showing from St. Mark Parish in Buffalo!
The community at St. Mark Parish in Buffalo has shown incredible leadership in this campaign, surpassing their goal of $780,000 before Fr. Joe Rogliano’s public announcement scheduled for next weekend. Recent receptions have seen families come together in the school’s cafeteria, excited and willing to learn all about the initiatives of Upon This Rock.
The results at these receptions have been outstanding as even more families have sat down with Fr. Joe and St. Mark’s Ambassadors, following the call to become leaders in this endeavor. To date, St. Mark has raised $840,200 from the first 70 gifts – that’s 114% of its goal! The parish now aims to take advantage of the over goal sharing formula – for every dollar raised over the goal, the parish will receive 55 cents rather than the 35 cents received for every dollar up to the goal.
Congratulations to the St. Mark parish family on their early success. Read more below for even more good news from the Upon This Rock initiative!
