The DREAM team has HEART

Fr. Joseph Magdaong at St. Stephen Martyr in Monterey Park unveiled an additional title for his Campaign Executive Committee – the DREAM team. DREAM is an acronym for:

Donation - Those who are invested will be the best advocates for the campaign! 

Response - Called to Renew presents us with a chance to respond and thank God for all the blessings he has provided. 

Extra mile - The people of St. Stephen Martyr parish are generous. This campaign is an opportunity to go a little bit further - that extra mile - to ensure the health and vibrancy of our families, our parishes and our communities. 

Action - To inspire and be inspired takes action. We all can be active participants in the change we want to see in the future of our archdiocese. This campaign is an opportunity to champion change and act on our faith. 

Make a difference - The work we do today will have an impact on the Church for generations to come! 

This DREAM team will work alongside Fr. Joseph in hopes of achieving God’s dream for their parish. We are rooting for you all! 

The parish community at St. Stephen Martyr also prioritize opening their HEART to God. 

They do this with a commitment to: 

Humility, Eucharist, Attention, Results, and Trust

Thanks, Father Joseph, for inspiring us all! 

Congratulations to Dcn. Jim Carper and the committee at St. Bernadette!  

Following a great Kick-Off meeting at St. Bernadette, the parish quickly commenced its fundraising effort. After sharing how the monies returned to St. Bernadette will be used to repave and expand the parking lot, install a new HVAC system, renovate the convent, and repair the pews and kneelers, parishioners donated more than $170,000! This is tremendous generosity and provides momentum as we expand the number of families learning about Called to Renew

St. Mary Parish in Palmdale has great attendance at the Ambassador meeting! 

Nearly 40 parishioners attended the first Campaign Executive Committee orientation this week. With a challenging schedule over the next few weeks, Father Vaughn planned ahead! He has scheduled 17 visits before his upcoming trip to Israel and has already received $48,200 in pledged gifts. 

St. Kevin and Precious Blood parishioners demonstrate great generosity! 

Congratulations to Father Bacani at St. Kevin and Precious Blood parishes! Through early campaign activity, both parishes have raised more than 30% of their respective campaign targets, from less than 10 gifts each. We are grateful for the positive response from families in Los Angeles!
