Upon This Rock Campaign Goal = $6.225 Million
Campaign Receives Largest Grant in Parish History
Over the weekend of January 21 & 22, Pastor Steve Cook announced at all masses that we have received a $350,000 challenge gift for our campaign. Our goal is to respond to this challenge with $350,000 in new pledges. We have received $5.3 million in pledges and gifts so far. This $700,000 ($350k + $350k) will enable us to move forward with both the school renovation and the multi-purpose (narthex) space this summer. This is a wonderful opportunity, made possible by two very generous donors.
On January 25, letters were mailed to all parishioners and school families who have not yet made their pledges. All who make a pledge or gift now will double the impact of their gifts.

3 Key Components
Payment of $325,000 in debt from our recent parking lot renovation:
Many families provided initial financial support for this project in conjunction with Meyer Fest 2014 and the 2015 PTA Auction cash call. We raised $300,000, nearly half the cost of this substantial undertaking. Funds raised as part of this campaign will be used to eliminate the remaining balance of the project cost.
North School Building Renovation – $5.9 million :
Facilities need to be updated to meet the safety and learning requirements of today’s students. The needs are immediate and cannot be handled through regular operating funds. Your support will provide the features necessary in a modern educational facility while honoring the building’s beloved 1928 charm and character.
Narthex Gathering Space :
Upon completion of the debt retirement and school renovation fundraising initiatives (above), St. Peter’s will commence the narthex gathering space.
