Finalizing our Journey Forward Campaign Goals

A Message from Our Parish Development & Stewardship Director, Wendy Horton

DSCN4952

In 2011, the Journey Forward Strategic plan gathered the parish community together to discuss and create plans for how the St. Joan community would adapt for the future in 2016. A short time later, in November of 2013, one of the initiatives that grew out of those strategic plans was the Journey Forward Capital Campaign, and from there the rest became history. Fast forward, here we are today, in what seems like a blink of an eye, it is April 2018. I am certain that most of you would agree, the last 7 years have been quite the Journey! With broad-based participation and community input, an idea was born; that idea blossomed into a plan, and lastly, the plan came to a realization. What a true blessing for all of us to have witnessed.

The SJA faith community has rallied behind this project and raised an astonishing amount of money to complete our Journey Forward Capital Campaign Financial obligations.We have been extremely fortunate, just when we thought we were going to be saddled with a debt to the Diocese, we were blessed not once but three times with a Matching Gift challenge and each time members of the community embraced and supported this cause.

With your help, once again, we hope to raise the final $5,000 which will complete the 2018 Matching Gift Challenge. This $100,000 match along with the $100,000 raised will complete our Journey Forward Financial Obligation to the Diocese.

We will still be busy collecting pledges from our earlier campaign initiatives of close to $360,000, but those funds combined with the 2018 Matching Gift Challenge funds, will complete the last fundraising challenge of the Journey Forward Campaign.

Together as a giving community, we have come further than anyone could have imagined. Thank you to all who have generously supported the Campaign. To those who have not yet made a commitment to our Journey Forward campaign, there is still time to be a part of this successful endeavor. Please take part in this campaign, join the rest of the community, and say that you have made a significant difference in the Future of St. Joan of Arc.
