Dear Parishioners-

THIS IS COMMITMENT WEEKEND!          

Last weekend at all the Masses, David and

Leslie Martinelli, our Grateful for God’s Providence Capital Campaign Parish Co-Chairpersons, gave a beautiful witness of their own prayerful discernment about their participation in this historic endeavor for our diocesan church and parish community. They spoke about being  life-long parishoners here at St. Augustine’s, their attendance at St. Augustine School, their marriage at St. Augustines and the raising of their four children here who all attended Catholic schools. Leslie spoke of her own 40 plus years  serving  as a teacher in a Catholic school and her role as moderator of a social ministry and pro-life committee at school where she was able to see first-hand the good work that our diocese does every day to provide for those most in need. David reminded the churchgoers that all the diocesan funds collected (with the exception of the funds for the Cathedral of Sts.Peter & Paul renovation which will be used immediately) will be placed in interest-bearing endowments which are strictly limited to the  areas (case elements) already identified for their use. David also informed the people about the specific use of the parish share of the funds collected, 40% of every dollar raised will remain here for parish use. With these funds, the front vestibule of our church will be updated, the bapistry will be repurposed as a meditation and prayer space, the votive candle room with be refurbished, “the cry room” will be updated and the  restroom off the front entrance will be completed renovated. This work will begin before all the donated and pledged funds have been collected. We are hoping to have this work finished in the Spring of 2019 in time for the 90th anniversary of the founding of St. Augustine Parish. Please take a look at the architectual renderings on display at the front and side entrances of the church which illustrate the scope of the renovation and remodeling work that is planned.

The success of our efforts begins with YOU and your commitment to share your gifts. Please join your fellow parishioners and friends who have already made a sacrificial commitment to this campaign. If you are not prepared to make your donation this weekend, don’t worry! There is still time. If you received a personalized pledge card in the mail, please place it in the collection basket at any Mass, put it in the U.S mail or drop it in the mail slot at the rectory office. If not, please take a pledge card available in the pews and follow the same procedure.                

Thank you for the generosity of your prayers and financial support.

Father Forcier
