OCC Capital Campaign Update

OCC Capital Campaign Update

Dear Parishioners,

First, I would like to give you the good news that we have received from the anonymous donor the first installment of the donation totaling $ 250,000 as announced last Sunday.

The capital campaign appeal of last Sunday was very successful.  Thanks to the generosity of so many parishioners who got the message of the miraculous multiplication of “pledges!” Yes, we can call it a miracle because Jesus who has been challenging and testing us transformed our hearts to take the leap of faith, and in trust we went ahead to pledge. But I also think St. Damien was interceding for us the whole weekend since his relic was before us in the Church. We hope to give you the results of the capital campaign appeal of last Sunday in the next bulletin issue.

I would like to thank all parishioners who have made their 3-year capital campaign pledge and particularly those who have increased their 3-year pledge. This has been very helpful. Some families have pledged several times and I would like to express deep gratitude to these families. As announced last Sunday, all Masses this Sunday will be celebrated for the intention of the anonymous donor, all parishioners who have made their 3-year pledges including our parishioners who have passed on since we began the capital campaign.

Stay tuned!

Monsignor John S. Mbinda
