Dear Friends in Christ:
On mm dd, yyyy, I was appointed pastor of St. Rita Parish and have since been blessed to be part of a family united in Catholic faith, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and committed to one another in love and service. For past year, I have witnessed firsthand the great works of the good people of our parish. Through the hard work of so many people, our ministries serve the needs of our parishioners and people throughout Dade City, FL. We are truly blessed!
St. Rita is our spiritual home and, like many of your own homes, is in need of several repairs. (sentence about Bishop’s permission for capital fundraising)
Over the next two years, there are eight specific construction projects that need to be completed in our parish. (They include repairs to the ?????????. In total, these renovations will cost $120,000. To raise these funds, we are embarking on our own capital campaign called the “Fix It Campaign.” For more details on the “Fix It Campaign” and the planned repairs, please explore our parish website, including the campaign video, or consult the bulletin or e-newsletter.
We are truly blessed at St. Rita and I am asking all of us as a family united in our Catholic faith, empowered by the Holy Spirit, and committed to one another to take part in the “Fix It Campaign.” To participate, please complete the pledge card that you received in the mail, print one from our website, or pick one up at the Parish Office and return it in the envelope provided. You may also make your pledge online by clicking here. Remember, every donation counts and 100% of all funds raised will stay in the parish specifically for the renovations.
With your prayers and financial help, together we can make our spiritual home safe and beautiful.
Please accept my personal thanks for all you do to make St. Rita the great parish it is.
All for One and One for All in Jesus Christ.
God Give You Peace,
