The hallmark of any capital campaign is building relationships. There is nothing more important than building relationships which strengthen our parish community. Our twenty-fifth anniversary capital campaign has already raised nearly 85% of our $5 million goal. But we wish we had been able to build more relationships during the past pandemic-limited months.

With this in mind, we would like to invite all parishioners to attend either a Wine and Cheese Reception at 7:00 PM on Friday, September 24 or a Family Friendly Brunch for the entire family at 12:30 PM on Sunday, September 26.  We are also planning one or more Zoom Receptions at 7:00 PM on Wednesday, September 29, for those who may prefer a socially-distanced gathering.

  • You may not be in a position to make a pledge right now. Please attend anyway.
  • You may not even know what this campaign is about. Come and hear a short 20-minute presentation.
  • You may not know anyone else who may be there – that’s all the more reason to come out to meet your fellow parishioners!

No one will ask you to speak, nor to make any immediate commitment. We hope these receptions, both in-person and by Zoom, will foster building new and deeper relationships among our parishioners and at the same time provide all that you need to make a prayerful decision about your ability to participate (or not) financially in this anniversary campaign.

To attend, contact the parish ministry center (610-321-1200; campaign@stelizabethparish.org). Please RSVP by Wednesday, September 15.  Thank you!
