The weekly Offertory is a fund that pays for routine operations of the parish. It includes salaries, rent/mortgage, maintenance, utilities, and day-to-day expenses.
The Building Fund is an ongoing and long term, regular savings account to which parishioners contribute and have contributed to since the Mission was formed in 2002 – and will continue even after this project is completed. It funds building, and improvement projects, but most of the funds will be used to build a permanent Church. The current account balance is about $500,000.
The first and second Capital Campaigns are designed to raise funds rapidly to build a permanent Church. Parishioners are asked to pledge an amount that can be paid at once or over a period of up to 3 years. The expectation for a Capital Campaign is to raise significant amounts quickly, like a burst, as opposed to routine, weekly or monthly contributions.
Funds from the Building Fund and Capital Campaign will be used to build a permanent Church.
