$2.9 Million Remaining to Realize the Master's Plan

January opened the year with great excitement as we celebrated the first anniversary of Anderson Hall and our Education & Community Outreach Center with the inaugural Spirit of St. Francis Xavier Gala. It was an evening of Dining, Dancing, Honoring parishioner Joe Anderson for his leadership to Realize the Master's Plan, and Celebrating the Spirit of St. Francis Xavier, where we are Jesuit Strong!

Thanks to our Gala Committee Susie Martin, Ted Donley, Jeffrey Carpentier, Celeste Johnson, Terry Peltz, Jim Reynolds and Tex Ritter. Because of their vision, commitment and dedication we have a wonderful new annual celebration.

All Gala dollars raised went toward retiring our capital campaign. And, coupled with the end-of-the-year gifts from our generous parishioners and school families, I am so pleased to announce we have just $2,9 million remaining to complete our $25 million capital campaign goal.

2017 marks the 10th anniversary for the vision and planning to transform the St. Francis Xavier Catholic Faith Community physical facilities so that we may better serve you our parishioners, and our students, as well as extend our Jesuit outreach and service to our neighbors in need across the Valley and State.

I am happy to report we are living up to this promise every day. And, every day we are Jesuit Strong'

With the end of our campaign so close, I am humbly asking all members of our St. Francis Xavier Community to make one final donation so that together, we raise the remaining $2.9 million to finish this Capital Campaign Jesuit Strong. Thanks to the generosity of the Anderson Family Foundation, your pledge will be matched dollar­-for-dollar.

I pray that I may count on you to be Jesuit Strong.
