Thank you for all campaign volunteers who made last weekend’s official public launch of our Forward in Faith, Love, and Service campaign a success! Our parish and school family has already raised $6.4 million toward our $10 million goal! We have just $1.2 million to go to reach our $7.5 million Celebration Goal. Will you please join us?
By now, you should have received a campaign appeal packet detailing the campaign goals and my personal appeal to you for a campaign commitment that I would like you to prayerfully consider. Please review the campaign material, pray about your response, and continue to spread the excitement about the great changes happening at San Jose parish and school!
I have asked each of our campaign volunteers to meet personally with members of our parish family. If you receive a call, I kindly ask that you:
- Take the call or return the message. Do not avoid talking to our volunteers. It makes their job more difficult and puts them in a position where they must keep calling in an attempt to reach you.
- Meet face-to-face, if possible. If you are asked to meet, please give our volunteers 15 minutes of your time. They are not trying to twist your arm, they just want to explain briefly the campaign goals, answer your questions, and receive a decision about your participation.
- Return your Pledge Card
If you received a pledge card inside your packet of materials, you will likely not be called by a campaign volunteer. Please discern your involvement in the campaign, fill out the card and return it in the envelope provided.
- Your Gift Matters!
Remember, the letter you will receive from me includes a financial request. As we have bold needs, I am making a bold request. But please know that it is not an expectation. It is an invitation. I invite you to reflect upon our parish, its future, and your important role in this campaign. You may not be able to give what was asked. You may be able to give more than was asked. Whatever that decision is, know that your commitment is deeply appreciated and a true blessing to our parish!
In His love,
Father Remek Blaszkowski
