Upon This Rock Parishes Reach Major Campaign Milestones
Following the Bishop's public announcement of the Upon This Rock initiative, both Pilot Phase parishes and the campaign as a whole reported major achievements as they reach significant new milestones.
Fr. Art Mattulke is excited to report that his parish SS. Peter and Paul in Hamburg has reached 100% of its goal. SS. Peter and Paul had the highest goal of the Pilot parishes. To date, the parish has raised $2,131,664 from nearly 600 gifts. This achievement means that all of the Pilot parishes have surpassed their target - the eight parishes report a combined total of $7,961,122 from 1,974 gifts - boasting 120% of their overall goal.
The achievements in the Pilot parishes is not the only good news out of Upon This Rock this week, as overall campaign totals (including Pilot and Block 1 parishes, Combined Campaigns, and Leadership Gifts) surpassed $30,000,000! To date, the campaign has received over 3,000 gifts from families throughout the Diocese of Buffalo. We look forward to sharing more positive results as Block 1 parishes continue to find success each week.
