Love One Another Capital Campaign 2021

Volunteer Information

Thank you for volunteering to assist your parish with its Love One Another campaign. The information found here will help you prepare for personal visits with fellow parishioners and community members. Every family will be invited to prayerfully consider making their best pledges to the campaign. Your generous, enthusiastic, and dedicated involvement will help achieve the best possible results for your parish. 


Prayer is a vital component of this campaign and is a key to overall success.  Each parishioner is invited prayerful consideration of their pledge.



The most effective method to raise funds in a campaign is through personal, face-to-face requests. Personal visits enable you to explain the needs fully, answer questions, and invite parishioners to make their best pledges to the campaign.



Everyone is blessed with different financial situations.  Parishioners are asked to give in proportion to their blessings--equal sacrifice versus equal pledges.  



To encourage long-term commitments to the campaign, pledges are payable five years. The campaign emphasizes pledging because it allows all families the opportunity to consider larger commitments than through one-time gifts.



Parish campaigns are structured in a phase-by-phase manner.  Each phase of campaign activity builds on the success of the previous phase.  The parish campaign starts by inviting pledges from parishioners who give the most to the offertory, followed by regular offertory contributors, and finally giving every household the opportunity to make their best pledges.
