Every year, through Project Advance – together – we support a wide range of ministries that help others in our Archdiocesan community; i.e. building of catholic schools to provide catholic education; out-reach programs; Youth Ministry, etc.
EACH parish, in the Archdiocese of Vancouver, is given a goal in which to support these many Ministries. If and when a parish has met their allotted goal, they are given an “incentive”. Anything OVER this goal, the parish is allowed to keep and to use toward their own benefit and needs.
This year our Archdiocesan goal is $56,400. Every penny collected over this amount will stay within Holy Cross Parish and go towards the following:
- Replacing the windows in the sacristy (approximately $10,000)
- installation of an EV charging station (approximately $8,000)
- Rebuilding or seismic upgrade of our elementary school
I am strongly encouraging you to “please” consider becoming a contributing member of Project Advance. I ask that you give willingly and from the heart. Remember… no gift is too small. Together, let us build our Parish Community…not only for today, but for all the tomorrows.
