New Year, New Goals!
As we garner in a new year, we also welcome the Block 4 parishes to Upon This Rock’s Weekly Newsletter.
As our regular readers know, we divide the parishes into blocks to allow our staff to provide appropriate attention to each community and while effectively maximize campaign resources. Two of our Block 4 parishes, St. Katherine Drexel in Buffalo and Our Lady of Bistrica in Lackawanna, have already surpassed their goals – with over 50 parishes in this block overall, we look forward to reporting on similar successes on a regular basis! Over the next few months, the progress made at these parishes will allow us to reach our $100 million goal.
In a recent interview with the campaign’s podcast, Bishop Malone spoke of the optimism that he takes with him as we move into this final phase of Upon This Rock. He said, “There is light at the end of the tunnel […] [Parishioners] are making a faith investment with [their] pledge or your gift that will help to ensure […] that we can do the work of Christ effectively and not always worry ‘where am I going to get the dollars to pay for this?’”
We can’t wait to share more news as we enter the final stretch of this campaign. As always, we thank you for following this advancement with us, as well as for the many ways you support Upon This Rock.
