(Published in the July 21, 2016 parish bulletin)
Dear St. Peter’s Parishioners,
I have exciting news to share with you. We have received the approval of the diocese and are moving forward immediately with a three-year, $6.2 million capital campaign. It will include renovation of the north school building, debt repayment for the “Safe to School” project and continued exploration of a gathering space (narthex) between the church and school.
A representative from the Steier Group will arrive next week to help us organize our campaign. We will assemble a team to solicit donations, not only from parishioners and school families, but from alumni, community partners and charitable foundations. If you expressed a willingness to help with that process, thank you. You will be contacted soon
We will keep you informed as the campaign progresses and will continue to furnish conceptual drawings via email, church bulletin, our website and Facebook. There will be much work to do in the coming weeks and months, and I look forward as always to seeing how our parish family rises to the occasion. Exciting times lie ahead.
Fr. Steve Cook
