Our Capital Campaign approaches $2 million milestone!
The theme, Our Lady, Our Parish, Our Legacy, places us securely under the protection of Mary who guides her faithful people in fulfilling the mission of Jesus. It highlights the importance of our parish community made up of people who make OLA what it is – welcoming, prayerful, compassionate, and generous. It inspires us to create a legacy of our own.
Our “glad tidings” at year’s end are that OLA is approaching the $2 million milestone for our capital campaign and will celebrate this achievement in early 2017. A description of our current plan and a timeline for the work will be presented at the milestone celebration in January or February. This will include a full accounting of the capital campaign fund and projections for the cost of our first construction phase. If all goes well, we should begin the work of renovating the church next summer.
In the season when young and old are building memories, we are deeply grateful for the generous contributions of time, talent and treasure which are building an important legacy of faith and service at OLA.
Now is the ideal time to complete your pledge for 2016 or make a contribution to the capital campaign. The end of the year is also a good time to consider a bequest to the parish from your estate or retirement fund. Please contact Neomi Torres, Director of Parish Administration, for more information or assistance at (909) 626-3596, ext. 203.
