Welcoming All to Raise the Roof!

Our capital campaign, themed “Welcoming All to Raise the Roof” began in September, 2016. With your generous participation, prayers and support, it will be successful. Success means raising money but more importantly, it is a time to come together as one united church in Germantown to secure the future home for the Catholics of today and those who will follow.

As we launch this campaign, we will reach out to you for your participation and financial support. Gifts of every size are necessary and appreciated. But more importantly, this campaign seeks to involve as many members as possible in order to build an even greater community of faith and friendship.

Prayerfully consider the many and varied resources God has placed in your hands. Consider how your gift to the Capital Campaign is a response to God’s continuing generosity to you. We must join together in making a sacrificial pledge to the Capital Campaign, over and above your regular offerings. Thank you for your faithfulness.

Many will choose pledges over several years (a three year pledge is suggested). Some will wish to memorialize members of their family. There will be opportunity for every parish member to participate in many different ways.
