On Monday September 17, 25 parishioners turned out to learn more about the Diocesan/Parish GiFT (Growing in Faith Together) campaign. These people, and others, will be visiting all parishioners as “ambassadors” for the campaign, aimed re-energizing the Diocese and allowing parishes to move to a new level in their development and mission.
After a welcome address by Jim Sevigny, Martha Asselin addressed the group on the aims of the campaign, the goal of which is to raise a total of $12 million. Our own parish intends to raise $295,000 to expand our ministry and to achieve needed renovations in the church building; in addition, we shall raise a further $146,500 for diocesan purposes (much of what the diocese receives will be used for furtherance of individual parish needs).
