Immaculate Conception, Ransomville Goes Above and Beyond!

Immaculate Conception in Ransomville has made incredible strides as the parish continues to surpass its goal.  Last week, Fr. Jim Bastian and his Ambassadors lead an exciting Commitment Weekend, as parishioners contributed 57 new gifts totaling $122,775.  Following previous success throughout Upon This Rock, this 24% jump took Immaculate Conception to 157% of their goal – with gifts from over 130 families.   
With a second Commitment Weekend on the horizon, Immaculate Conception is in the final weeks of the Upon This Rock campaign.  As his parish wraps up, Fr. Jim is optimistic that his parishioners’ outpouring of generosity and support will continue.  “[Their] support is essential to Immaculate Conception’s success with Upon This Rock,” Fr. Jim remarked, while adding, “[it’s] what will keep our parish great!”
