Our Buildings Breathe...our Capital Campaign efforts provide buildings for ministry, education, worship and more!
Dear Parishioners and Friends,
Our first ever breakfast fundraising event, Jesuit Strong/Coffee with Companions, was held on August 30 to a standing room only group of parents and parishioners. We came together to celebrate our distinct community and, of course, to garner support for our remaining campaign debt. We left inspired and invigorated, and reminded of how remarkable it is to be part of the Jesuit-led faith community, St. Francis Xavier. Take a look at the short video below created for and shown at our event.
Our tallies are nearly complete and we are proud to announce that our first breakfast fundraising was a huge success in so many ways. Financially, we reduced our debt by $800,000.00. Spiritually, we soared with companionship and camaraderie.
Our journey has been fruitful, as we’ve realized the construction of new facilities at the school and parish. These new facilities: the Education and Outreach Center, Gymnasium and Parish Center/Anderson Hall, as well as, many physical plant improvements, enable us the resources needed to expand our ministries throughout our growing community.
We built buildings, and the buildings breathe. They breathe with the breath of children every day in every classroom. With the breath of families and friends as we celebrate, learn and discern all it means to be a part of this Catholic faith community. And, they breathe with hope for our future.
