(Hebrews 10:24) “We must consider how to rouse one another to love and good works.”
Parishes are where we meet the Lord in sacrament and community. It is at our parishes that we can best live our faith, call others to Christ, and help to build up the kingdom of God. For this reason, 35% of all funds raised up to the parish goal, 65% up to 1.2x the parish goal, and and 100% of every dollar over 1.2x the parish goal raised by the parish will fund the parish’s own mission and capital priorities. These funds will help parishes build new facilities for ministry, maintain current facilities, pay off debt, build parish endowments, or support other local needs. Parishes with significant projects can opt for a larger goal to meet those needs. The results of Witness to Hope will be stronger parishes, better able to advance the sacred mission of the Church.
