Our school pledge drive has reached $2.03 million dollars pledged over 5 years, exceeding our $2 million dollar goal. The amazing success of this pledge drive has insured the financial stability of our school for the next 8 years and into the foreseeable future.
Our Finance Council's proposal to the Archdiocese contained financial projections highlighting the financial strength and stability of our school for the indefinite future. showing our school is financial viable for the next decade and into the foreseeable future. In fact the Archdiocese stated that our proposal was one of the best that they had ever seen, and that our response to the events of the past few weeks could serve as a model to other schools in the diocese.
We thank the many, many people who supported us with prayers, volunteer work and financial support. Without our committed school families, parishioners, alumni and friends of the school, we would not be here today.
