Ensuring vibrant parish life was a substantial component of the campaign. To help meet future needs, 20 percent of the funds raised by parishioners was returned to local parishes. When complete, approximately $8 million from the campaign will return directly to parishes. Individual parishes will get to decide how best to use these resources.
Strong parishes becoming vibrant communities of faith is central to the mission of Jesus and to our lives of discipleship. In a sense, the entire campaign effort was for our parishes and the growth of faith in each community. At the same time, one of the primary objectives of the campaign was to strengthen parishes in unison with the diocesan effort, to help meet local parish needs. Each parish raised funds for its own identified specific needs. These included building expansion, repairs and renovations, parish endowments, debt relief, or a base of funding for parish ministries.
