Parishioners at Holy Name of Mary Go Far and Beyond The Call!
Fr. Mierzwa is excited to report that Holy Name of Mary in Ellicottville, with $479,687 pledged to date, has raised 108% of its $448,000 goal! At the first Commitment Weekend, the parishioners raised 14% of their overall goal, a total of $62,450.
We spoke with Fr. Mierzwa who attributes the success of the campaign to his generous parishioners. “I am humbled by the profound generosity of my parishioners as we approached [and surpassed] our goal of $448,000," he said, and “it was bolstered by [some] generous parishioners who are seasonal visitors.” Fr. Mierzwa feels blessed by the support the parish has given to the campaign.
With their 35% share, Fr. Mirezwa will create an endowment fund that will aid in preserving the parish for years to come. 55% of whatever is raised now will remain in the parish.
Congratulations again to Fr. Mierzwa and all of the parishioners at Holy Name of Mary!
