Upon This Rock Pilot Phase Surpasses Group Goal!
The Pilot pastors, parish leaders, and their campaign ambassadors are thrilled to announce that the Pilot-phase parishes have surpassed their campaign goal!
These results are the product of the commitment of pastors, their parishioners, and their continual outpouring of time and talent. Upon This Rock has been a concerted effort to foster community within the Diocese of Buffalo. To date, the eight Pilot parishes have raised $6,713,922 from nearly 1,200 gifts – this is 101% of the phase’s goal.
With the Christmas season well underway, it is especially humbling to see the selflessness of Buffalo’s parishioners as they help to shape the Church’s future. In the coming weeks, five parishes will be hosting their Commitment Weekends, which means the Pilots will far exceed their goal. The Upon This Rock initiative continues to develop momentum as Block 1 parishes commence their early activity. Everyone from Upon This Rock looks forward to sharing more good news from the Pilots and Block 1 in the coming weeks.
