Words from the Pastor ~ Father Bob
St. John Vianney Parish is a community rich in tradition. We are genuinely striving to live as a family of faith, witnessing the kingdom of God in ourselves and in our community. As your Pastor, I, along with the Capital Campaign Committee, have the joy of asking you to participate in our Capital Campaign in support of the next part of our plan. Needless to say, our Parish is much more than the buildings in which we gather, but giving to the Campaign is a way for us to make an investment in the future of our Parish and its people. It is an opportunity for all of us to become more closely united as a Faith Family, to individually and communally recommit ourselves to our Faith and the presence of the Church here in Orchard Park. This campaign will not address all of our needs, but it is another step to making our Parish stronger by caring for our gifts and giving a return to God in gratitude. Only by acting together as a Parish Family can we successfully raise the money to complete the renovations. Please take the time to carefully review this brochure. After reading it, I ask that you prayerfully consider your own commitment to this project and be open to responding with generosity and gratitude.
Words from the Campaign Chairs ~ Gene & Ann Jordan
From Our Campaign Chairs We are honored to serve as co-chairs for the St. John Vianney Parish United in Faith: Building the Body of Christ Capital Campaign. We have joined this effort because this Parish community has been our spiritual home for many years and the benefi ts have been more than we can measure. We are encouraged by the plans that will re-envision our Parish home in light of our new parish mission and vision. This campaign is still a signifi cant challenge for our church. We are confi dent that Father Bob and the Finance committee have formulated a plan that will allow for the needs of the Parish. At the same time, we feel confi dent that our Parish family will come together, as we have so many times in the past, to raise the additional funds necessary for completion of this project. Now it is up to all of us to provide for the future. The mission is to grow our Roman Catholic family through service to our community and the vision is to be a community where Jesus is known through word and action. This vision and mission will build a parish environment that can become a reality if each family joins with us in making a fi nancial sacrifi ce to our Parish. It is vital that everyone participates and works towards realizing our goal. We look forward to your support as we undertake this challenge. We ask that you prayerfully consider your fi nancial support. This campaign offers us an opportunity to strengthen our sense of community for which we are so proud.
