Bishop Boyea, our chief Pastor, is inviting us to join him and our fellow Catholics in the Diocese of Lansing to strengthen the many works of the church here at home, in our region and in the Diocese by making a pledge or gift to Witness to Hope. As the largest parish in Genesee and Shiawasee Counties, we are asked to do our share. Our challenge goal is $1,194,893 (of which $334,570 will remain at St. John Campus and $83,643 will remain at Blessed Sacrament for needed improvements). How can you help?

We’re inviting every household to consider making a pledge or gift according to your circumstances. Though a number of us (140 persons, myself included) are still working on our pledge for the Gathering Space, I am asking the rest of us who are in a position to make a pledge or gift to this first ever Diocesan Capital Campaign according to your circumstances. I ask not for equal gifts but for equal sacrifice. -Fr. Andrew
