Frequently Asked Questions

  • How will the campaign affect parish offertory collection?
    In the short term, offertory giving is expected to remain constant. Throughout the campaign, volunteers will ask parishioners to make commitments above and beyond regular giving. Parishioners are asked not to diminish giving to the offertory collection, but rather to view their pledge to Our Mission, Our Future ...Our Legacy as an extraordinary contribution.

  • Why emphasize pledges?
    Pledges allow donors to consider giving more than is possible through “one-time” gifts. This is important in a campaign of the magnitude of Our Mission, Our Future ...Our Legacy.

    Donors to Our Mission, Our Future ...Our Legacy can request payment reminders with return envelopes be sent according to the schedule indicated on their pledge card.
