On Our Capital Campaign
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven…(Ecc. 3. 1-8)
There is never a perfect time to hold a capital campaign. But our buildings need much work, and we can build a church and a parish hall that will be a powerful means of evangelization in a fallen world. More than ever, the world in which we live needs to see a clear statement of the glory of God. Our new church will be such a statement. And inside our community, a profound formation of our young members will take place, as they worship inside a church which is in full conformity to the teaching of the Catholic Church and her tradition regarding proportion, radiance and harmony.
To give a good idea of what this will look like, a Virtual Tour video is available. Please watch it and then consider it prayerfully.
I am sure that now is the time to build. Construction and material costs are very low. In a sense, everything is on sale.
For me to ask you to sacrifice for this project, I must make my own sacrifice. So I will donate one full year of salary, plus all stole fees and Mass stipends for a year, which comes to $11,400.00. In this way, I will be able to ask you for a sacrifice by giving a large one myself.
Please be generous to our project, and help our traditional Latin Mass to be a part of an evangelization to a world which wants to forget there is a God.
In Christ and Mary,
Rev. James W. Jackson, FSSP
Pastor, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel
