Capital Campaign-Building Fund Collection 

It’s the 3rd Sunday of the month and that means we have a collection for the Capital Campaign. Please drop your envelopes in the specially marked basket on your way into Mass. Thank you to those who are making payments on your pledges. This month the Diocese has sent us $87,000 as a disbursement from the Together Campaign payments. We will place these funds in our savings account for future renovations of the courtyard and Hurtado Hall at St. Mary’s and the future building of a Church Hall at St. Juan Diego.
