Please help make the dream of a new ministry center and renovation of the original Peter the Rock Chapel project a reality. We know the Chapel and Ministry Center are vital to the health of our parish. As we continue to look for funding from private foundations and grantors, we also know we can’t do this without your help.
The Diocese of Colorado Springs requires that we meet financial benchmarks by December 31. We can move forward with this project if we raise 1.5 million dollars (half of the total project budget of nearly 3 million dollars). We’ve cut some things from the Parish Ministry Center plans to reduce the project’s cost to under 3 million dollars. The good news is we have over $750,000 in pledges so we are getting closer, but we are not there yet.
Every pledge matters, no donation or pledge is too small. Consider if you pledged $70 per month for 5 years, you would have contributed $4,200. Now imagine if 500 parishioners made the same pledge, it would add up to 2.1 million dollars. We currently have 2,200 families from which 1,450 come to church regularly. If all the families that regularly attend made the $70 per month pledge, we will raise roughly 6.1 million dollars – enough to cover both the Parish Ministry Center and school expansion with no debt.
My plea to you is to help me/us do this needed project. Someday I will be in another parish and, one day, you may be someplace else too. But we always will be remembered as parishioners who made a difference in the lives of others, especially the lives of the younger generations.
Do you need more information, do you need to discuss your pledge or how to make this work for you? Debby Dover, our Capital Campaign Coordinator and I welcome any and all questions so please just give us a call to find out how you can help. Our parish and finance council is able to answer your questions too. If we have enough pledges we will be able start the other project which is our school expansion in 2020. If we are short than we are in “trouble”.
We feel God’s grace as gratitude when we sit in a pew gathered for fellowship, we feel God’s grace as hope when we envision how our Peter the Rock Chapel and Ministry Center will support our mission.
