Wave 3 begins!

The Campaign Office offers a warm welcome to Wave 3 Pastors and Administrators, as well as their leadership committees. 

In the next couple weeks we will be hosting Wave 3 Kick-Off events. At the Kick-Off, we will hear from Archbishop Gomez about his vision for the future and learn more about the Campaign's case for support. Campaign counsel will also share top tips for fundraising.

Get a sneak peek at the core principles of a successful fundraising campaign below:

Prayer – With God's help, anything is possible! 

Personal Visits – Meeting with families face to face provides an opportunity to connect as a community. It also allows volunteers to adequately present the case, invite the participation of peers, answer questions, and thank families for their continued support. 

Pledged Commitments – By providing families more time to fulfill their commitments, most can consider more meaningful gifts than a one-time pledge would allow.

Proportional Requests – We have all been blessed differently. This effort seeks gifts of equal sacrifice, not an equal amount. 

Phase-by-Phase Approach – By working with small groups and increasing awareness over time, we ensure every family receives the necessary attention to make a decision about their support. Building momentum from the most involved and supportive families creates advocates who can go out and share the good news of Called to Renew with others. 

St. Paschal Baylon in Thousand Oaks goes over goal!
Congratulations to Fr. Michael Rocha and the Campaign Executive Committee at St. Paschal Baylon in Thousand Oaks for continuing to campaign following their second commitment weekend, and raising another $58,600 from 13 gifts. This brings their total raised to $1,449,043 from 349 gifts, which is 102% of their $1,425,000 goal! Thank you for your diligence and perseverance. We look forward to witnessing how the Campaign continues to bear fruit for the families and community at St. Paschal Baylon for years to come. Well done!

As we enter into the New Year, let us pray for the renewal of our spirits and the success of the Campaign:

A New Year's Prayer 

Lord, You make all things new
You bring hope alive in our hearts
And cause our Spirits to be born again.
Thank you for this new year
For all the potential it holds.
Come and kindle in us
A mighty flame
So that in our time, many will see the wonders of God
And live forever to praise
Your glorious name
