Capital Campaign – KOVG

Phase II Worship Space Renovation Rationale_Page_1

*Rationale for renovation


Capital Fund Appeal

We are a pilgrim church, on a journey, coming to know the Kingdom of God. We envision our parish church as a way station where all are welcome. Energizing prayer and worship nourish us on our journey. By freely sharing our gifts, we help ensure that our church facilities continue to promote the building up of our community. In so doing, we are better equipped to evangelize and witness to the world, committing ourselves to the service of justice and compassion.

This Appeal is a parish-wide effort by members of Our Lady of Lourdes to raise funds for the following:

To fully fund and complete the renovation of our worship space, fund renovations of our parish hall, and fund outdoor signage enhancements. Our goal is to raise as much of the proposed project costs as possible in three-year commitments.
