Burn the Mortgage Campaign Update
Many terrific updates to share. As of June 22, 2015:
- 48% of families have pledged
- Our cumulative pledges received to date stand at $1,372,777.96
- With cash received so far, we have made 3 payments of $100,000 each toward the outstanding principal of our outstanding debt, thus reducing it by 16%.
Reducing our principal 16% will also reduce our interest expense commensurately. Thanks to all who have contributed so far, and to everyone still contemplating a commitment. Praise God for your generosity.
Prayer for the Campaign
We thank You, God of Mysterious Ways,
that You have a holy design for each of us.
Let us rejoice that we are, each of us, special to You,
that our names are written in the palm of your hand.
By our lives, let us continually live within Your eternal plan.
Blessed are You, who call us out of our cocoon of comfort
to embark on an ever new path to Your holy presence.
Give us strength along the way and grant us success in our project
as a sign of giving you glory and praise.
Help us to be generous in our giving, joyful in our sacrifice,
and prayerful in our living the life Your son Jesus calls us to live.
Glory to You, O God,
for Your ever flowing blessings to our parish and each of us.
“Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice.” (Phil 4/4)
May the Lord’s blessing be yours always and in all ways. As a Catholic faith community, we stand ready to assist you in any way we can in sharing the love of Christ and His message of peace and joy. God bless you and know that we are praying for you.
