A Stellar Showing from St. Vincent De Paul in Niagara Falls!
The community at St. Vincent De Paul in Niagara Falls has shown incredible leadership in this campaign, surpassing their goal of $960,000 after a wine and cheese reception. Recent receptions have seen a tremendous outpouring of generosity and community building as parishioners contributed to Upon This Rock.
The results at the various gatherings and receptions have seen even more families sit down with Fr. Bob Hughson, Fr. Jeff Nowak, and St. Vincent De Paul's Ambassadors, following the call to become leaders in this endeavor.
To date, St. Vincent De Paul has raised $988,555 from 139 gifts - that's 103% 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.
