Home Campaign

Logo_Diocese_FINAL xx Make a Gift buttonRecognizing the needs of our parishes and our commitment to charity and evangelization, the Home campaign was initiated in late 2014.  A group of pilot parishes has blazed the way, setting a standard for organization and prayerful giving that other parishes will now follow.  See below for Pilot and Wave 1 goals, and future parish participation dates.

  1. Marketing genius!
    Tying the goals of each parish to those of the diocese for the Home Campaign really is genius. Rolling various goals into the Home Campaign is also brilliant. Some people would automatically “ante up” for the campaign to build the new cathedral, others for the ability to shore up the priest retirement fund, and some would feel called to support the charitable trust fund. Establishing a single campaign to raise funds for these and other projects breaks down some resistance a donor might have to supporting one or another project (“why do we need a new cathedral?”). Still, we are human, and concerned each with our own “home base.” Bringing together the specific needs and hopes of each parish with the wider, diocesan goals allows each donor to feel he (or she) is taking care of the home parish while also extending help to the diocese at large.
    It’s true and real and right, because each individual person is both part of the home parish and of the diocese; each individual parish household is it’s own Beth-El, as is each individual parish, and each diocese.
    One of the most glorious aspects of the Catholic Church is its catholicity or universality. We are all part of the Church that Jesus established for the world when He gave his friend, Peter, the Keys of the Kingdom. We are each, individually and as members of the parish, the diocese, the Holy Catholic Church, part of His Kingdom on Earth. This Home Campaign reminds us of that and involves us the support of and continued building of the Kingdom.
