  • Calling All Pledge Cards:  We need to be accountable for all pledge cards to be returned.  No matter what level of participation you choose, please return your pledge card asap.

IMPORTANT CAPITAL CAMPAIGN NEWS (for those who made pledges)

  • Once you make your initial “pledge,” please sit tight and wait for your statement to come in the mail from the company who is conducting this campaign for the Diocese.  It may take a while because of the volume of pledges.
  • When you receive your statement, mail it back to the company with your payment.  Use the envelope provided.  You should notice that the address is not the parish but the “Church Alive” Campaign headquarters.
  • DO NOT drop your pledge payments in the collection or mail them to the rectory.  They will have to be returned to you. We are not permitted to put these funds through our accounting system.
  • Once the monies are sent to the company, at some point we will start receiving checks from them.  I think they will be sending our reimbursement every quarter.
  • Thanks to everyone who has participated so far, you have exceeded the expectations of many.
