Next Saturday and Sunday, May 18-19, we will have our COMMITMENT WEEKEND for our CENTENNIAL PROJECT. I want to thank in advance the many of you who have already made a pledge for this project. I will be speaking after the homily at all Masses next weekend and will be encouraging you to support the Centennial Project both through prayer and a pledge of financial support.
In many ways, this building campaign will make space for us here in the parish as we enter our 100th year and will provide space for the next 100 years as well. Once again, the Centennial Project will cost $6.4 million (that includes a 10% contingency). We need to raise half of that ($3.2 million) in order to break ground. It would be wonderful to go over that goal!
Today you will see that there are Centennial Project brochures and envelopes in the pews. Please take one today and look over the many options of supporting this project. You can bring it back next weekend, drop it off at the Parish Office this week, or send it to us through the mail.
Please go to our website www.stjoanhershey.org/thecentennialproject to find more information about our Centennial Project. And check out the video about the history of our parish and more about the project. Please take the Centennial Project Prayer Card and pray each day for the success of our endeavors.
What we do today will be for our children and grandchildren and all who follow us as parishioners of Saint Joan of Arc in Hershey, PA. What an exciting moment in the history of our parish!
