Forward in Our Faith: A Capital Campaign
Since the two ‘in pew’ commitment weekends that we hosted for our Capital Campaign, pledges have still been coming into the rectory! Thank you! That puts us at $4,604,683 pledged toward our Capital Campaign total need of $6.2 Million dollars. This is so unbelievably generous and will make a huge impact on our future. Thank you for your generous support of the Campaign! And thanks to all the volunteers who worked so hard on the campaign to make us such a huge success. I am so grateful for your generous spirit that has drawn us together tightly as a parish community. Everyone pitched in to make this campaign a success; old, young, long time parishioners, new parishioners, single parishioners, families, families with kids in our School, families with kids in our Religious Education, large amounts, small amounts, everyone pitched in! Thank you!!
As successful as we have been, this pledged amount includes only 15% of our registered parishioners to date. For sure a good number of parishioners have been through one, two, three, or four previous Capital Campaigns and might feel a little ‘campaigned out’. This is certainly understandable. But what about the hundreds of households who have never contributed to an extraordinary Capital Campaign like this? Won’t you please consider a gift to this Campaign that secures our future so boldly? Pledge cards are located at the St. Benedict Shrine near the Campaign banner. Your gift will go a long way to make us secure for the future. Please pray about your gift!
May God continue to bless you and those you love. Please pray for me as I pray for you daily. God bless, Fr. Jason
Dear Sisters and Brothers,
From the early days of St. Benedict, parishioners recognized when they had to come together in order to meet the needs of our community. We find ourselves in a similar moment today.
Today, I am thrilled to announce to you that we are officially embarking upon Forward in Our Faith, a campaign to address the current and future needs of our parish and school!
This campaign will seek to support the following projects:
- Maintenance and upgrades to the church and other campus facilities
- A two-story addition to the school, resulting in a new campus learning center and seven additional classrooms
- Our contributions to the Archdiocese’s To Teach Who Christ Is capital campaign and an educational endowment for our sharing parish, Our Lady of the Snows
We are truly grateful for the incredible generosity and leadership of those who have accepted our invitation to participate. In the tradition of our founding members, our families today demonstrate stewardship and sacrifice for the good of our faith community.
In order for us to be successful, we are inviting every member of our parish to participate. You will soon receive a phone call from me or one of our dedicated campaign leaders, requesting a conversation to discuss the campaign and your own participation. It is my hope that you will accept our invitation and let us invite you to prayerfully consider how you can support St. Benedict in this transformative effort.
Thank you in advance for your commitment to our St. Benedict family. May God bless you and your loved ones!
In the service of Christ,
Fr. Jason Malave, Pastor

Brothers and sisters, as can now be seen all around our campus, we have had great success thus far with Forward in Our Faith, our capital campaign. We have raised over $4.3 million from 361 households! Thank you so much to those of you who have already made a gift and who have been in contact with our incredible volunteers. We realize that many of you may not have heard our entire campaign story just yet, and so we have put together a short video to help you learn more. Thank you in advance for your support! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the parish office.
