Parishioner Support Is Staying Strong!
Upon This Rock success continues throughout the Diocese of Buffalo, as St. Michael Parish in Warsaw surpasses its goal this week! Fr. James Hartwell hosted a Kick-Off Reception for parishioners that garnered a tremendous swell of support for their Upon This Rock campaign. The parish now stands at 110% of its goal as it commences its public-phase.
As regular readers know, 35% of what has been raised at St. Michael will go directly back into the parish. With their portion of this share, Fr. Hartwell says his parish plans to make necessary renovations to the Parish Hall that will allow them to relocate offices there. St. Michael also plans to make its heating system more efficient and cost-effective. Since the parish met its goal, 55% of all additional funds will be going back to its community.
Congratulations to Fr. Hartwell and everyone at St. Michael for making this campaign a success!
