Wave 1 Achieves 10% of the Wave Goal! 
Pastors continue making gifts! 

Through the hard work of our campaign leadership teams, Wave 1 has already reached 10% of the overall goal! Pastors, priests, and parish administrators have spent the past few weeks visiting with members of their campaign executive committees and top prospects to secure more than $1.6 million. This week alone, we raised upwards of $800,000! Thank you all for your dedication to the Called to Renew effort. We are extremely excited about the momentum building across our Wave 1 Parishes and look forward to keeping up the enthusiasm over the next six months! 

For those pastors, priests, and parish administrators still thinking about their participation in the Called to Renew campaign, know that it is easier to invite the participation of others once you have made a gift yourself. We appreciate your thoughtfulness and your willingness to join the 102 priests throughout the Archdiocese who have supported this effort with $940,966. 

San Antonio de Padua in Los Angeles raises 25% of its campaign target! 

Congratulations to Fr. Gustavo Ramon at San Antonio de Padua Parish for the campaign success to date. From just eight gifts, the parish has already achieved 25% of the $90,000 parish target. 

Our Lady of Lourdes expands their Ambassador team! 

Our Lady of Lourdes added two new Campaign Executive Committee members this week, and collected three pledges of $25,000 each! On Monday evening, the volunteer committee reached out to more than 125 fellow parishioners to ask them to join the team. 

Our Lady of Guadalupe parishioners demonstrate sacrificial giving! 

This week, Fr. Nelson Trinidad at OLG in Los Angeles received five new gifts totaling $63,200 or 24% of the campaign goal. Father is grateful for the tremendous support of his parishioners and is excited to continue inviting the participation of other parish families! 

La Placita leaders reach out to the community! 

This week, Fr. Arturo Corral and his campaign ambassadors invited ministry leaders to participate in the campaign. From these visits, Father has gained additional volunteer support to spread the good news of Called to Renew.  Families are discerning their financial participation in the effort. We are excited to celebrate their successes in the coming weeks!
