“Opening Our Doors” Campaign Update: (22.2%)
The Opening Our Doors to the Future Matching Campaign to modernize critical technology in our Church and across our Parish campus is moving along. As of November 16, we have collected $11,100 in donations which, with the matching funds of a very generous donor, brings us to $22,200, or 22.2% of goal. THANK YOU to all who have donated!
Phase One of this campaign which includes installation of a robotic video streaming system in our church; upgrading to fiberoptic Internet across our campus; and purchase of a handheld video camera is well underway. Our goal is to be able to livestream Christmas Masses with this new technology which — considering the current spike in positive COVID cases and the resulting shutdown of many businesses in our State — could prove to be of paramount importance.
All of this would not be possible without the insight (and very generous commitment of $50,000) from an OLW parishioner on a dollar-for-dollar matching basis (providing $100,000 of potential revenue for this fundraiser). Our future depends on your generosity.
May we count on your support?
