Capital Campaign Alive!
Through the generosity of 287 families who made five year sacrificial pledges, we surpassed our targeted goal of $940,000. The total pledged to date is $1,028,311. The average gift per family is $3,583. For any family who is still praying, you are encouraged to make a pledge for this first time 125th historic campaign for the Church Alive! which not only strengthens the Diocese of Pittsburgh, but also, directly aids our parish. This prayer was prayed at the beginning of each committee meeting:
Bishop Zubik’s Prayer For The Church Alive!
Father in heaven,
We, the Church of Pittsburgh,
praise You for the gift of your Son.
As a people who follow in His footsteps,
we pray for the grace
to embrace His mission, share His love
and proclaim the Gospel with courage.
We thank you for the gift of the Holy Spirit,
Who remains with us always.
We commit ourselves to all we do
with Your many gifts,
not done for ourselves,
but for You and for one another.
Help us, Lord, to be your Church Alive! by
living, sharing, praying as one people
in Allegheny, Beaver, Butler, Greene,
Lawrence and Washington Counties.
Inspired by the Holy Spirit,
grant our prayer as we offer it to You
in the Name of your Son Jesus,
and with the help of our Blessed Mother,
who protects us under the mantle of her garment.
Hear us. Guide us. Renew us.
Now and forever,
