Case Spotlight: Strengthening Our Parishes

Of the $500 million raised through Called to Renew, 75% or $375 million will be invested in strengthening our parishes. A general investment fund will be created to help parishes in need address urgent repairs beyond their financial resources. Gifts to Called to Renew will help to revitalize all parishes throughout the Archdiocese and prepare us for a more vibrant future.

To date, $1.75 million has been allocated to address the most immediate needs of parishes across the Archdiocese. 

St. Thomas More in Alhambra achieves its Campaign goal!
Congratulations to Fr. Thai Le, pastor at St. Thomas More in Alhambra, for a successful Commitment Weekend that raised nearly $40,000 and ultimately pushed St. Thomas More over its Called to Renew campaign goal! St. Thomas More has now raised $410,315 from 136 pledged gifts. The parish is eager to get started on its Campaign promise of constructing new wheelchair ramps to the main entrance of the church. Congratulations to the team of volunteers at St. Thomas More and the parish staff who helped with the campaign!

St. Didacus in Sylmar reaches 102%!
Congratulations to Fr. Bob Garon, pastor at St. Didacus in Sylmar, for surpassing the $1.125 million campaign target! St. Didacus raised $150,000 on average during both Spanish Commitment weeks. Fr. Bob is delighted to achieve goal and is even more excited to present the success of the Campaign to the English Masses during the Commitment Weekend presentations over the next two days. St. Didacus has now raised $1,144,056 or 102% of its overall goal. Congratulations again to Fr. Bob, all of the in-resident priests, the Campaign volunteers, and the entire community in Sylmar!
