This coming weekend, March 25th and 26th is Commitment Weekend! The formal push for our Realizing our Vision Capital Campaign is winding down and I continue to be amazed by the generosity of the St. Angela Merici community. We kicked off our effort 14 weeks ago and since then we’ve seen the fundraising totals gradually climb. As of March 20th, we have received $3,018,468 in total commitments from 471 families! Each gift, each pledge, each display of sacrifice has been an inspiration and blessing to our parish community. Due to the overwhelming display of stewardship, we are getting closer and closer to our $4 million Silver Goal.
We now join to celebrate Commitment Weekend. It is important to honor the families who have given so generously to this campaign. If you have made a pledge or gift, thank you! If you have yet to join our cause, I invite you to make your commitment today. Supporting our campaign isn’t an expectation – it’s an invitation to invest in the future of our church. We need your help!
Each of you will receive a commitment card during Mass this weekend. Each of you will be asked to complete the card. Before doing so, I ask that you review it carefully and discern what you might be able to do to help secure a brighter future for St. Angela Merici. Please know that your donation, no matter the size, will have a positive impact on the entire church community.
THANK YOU for your investment into St. Angela Merici, its mission and its ministries. With your support, our Realizing our Vision Capital Campaign will continue to be a huge blessing.

Beginning in 2016, our parish property will expand to include a new Church building, the Parish Life Center (PLC) and new Parish offices. The building in the middle, the PLC, is the only building currently on our property. In this expansion, the PLC will be renovated into a classroom building with a large gathering room and a youth room for the Youth Ministry. Estimated completion of this building phase will be the end of 2017.
