Stewards of God’s Grace Capital Campaign - Town Hall Meeting

Click below to watch the Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, January 9, 2018 in the St. Celestine Hall with Bishop Joseph Siegel, Rev. Bernie Etinenne, Tim McGuire, & Diane Keller about the shared campaign. 

We are coming together to address the current needs of our parishes, and bolster the work and ministries of our diocese. At this time, we invite every household of our diocesan-wide faith family to support a common goal – raising the funds that are crucial to create stronger parishes, which will serve to build a stronger diocese and help us grow as good stewards. Ultimately, rooted in a personal relationship with our Savior, it is all about carrying out the mission of the Church as entrusted to us by Jesus Christ.

If anyone has any questions or concerns about this campaign, feel free to talk to Fr. Eugene.
