ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

Dear Members of the St. Robert Family,

It is with great enthusiasm and a profound sense of purpose that we serve as the Co-Chairs of the Together In Christ campaign. Our parish has always been a source of strength, inspiration, and unwavering support for each and every one of us. Today, we embark on a journey together to secure the future of our parish community and form missionary disciples.

As you may already be aware, St. Robert of Newminster Parish is seeking to grow in size and spirit. Our school is bursting at the seams, our faith formation classes are filled to capacity, and our parish activities are vibrant and flourishing. However, this growth brings with it the need to repurpose and add space to accommodate the ever-increasing demand for our services. We are excited to announce a significant initiative that will enable us to fulfill these needs and position our parish for future growth: The Together in Christ capital campaign.

The goal of this campaign is to raise a total of $12.5 million. To achieve this ambitious target, our lead donors have committed to match the contributions made by the church community with a 2-to-1 match, which means that your donation will have triple the impact! By joining hands with us in this endeavor, you are not only contributing to the growth of our parish but also maximizing the impact of your generosity.

Here is a glimpse of what the expansion campaign will achieve:

  • Parish Activities: Increased room for parish activities and gatherings, ensuring that our sense of community remains vibrant and welcoming.
  • Faith Formation Classes: We will have more space for faith formation classes, allowing us to deepen our spiritual growth and understanding at all age levels
  • School Expansion: We will create additional classrooms and facilities to accommodate our growing student body in the elementary and grades 6, 7, and 8 for our new middle school.
  • Future Growth: By investing in the expansion of our church, we set the foundation for future growth, so generations to come can experience the love and fellowship of St. Robert’s.

Our parish has always thrived because of your unwavering support, and we have no doubt that you will embrace this campaign with open hearts. Together, we can make our dreams for a more spacious and welcoming St. Robert’s parish a reality, while maximizing our current unused spaces.

Please consider joining us in this endeavor. Your support, no matter the size, is vital to the success of this campaign. St. Robert’s has always been a beacon of faith, hope, and love in our lives. Now, let us come together, as one united family, to ensure that our parish continues to flourish for generations to come. We are humbled by your dedication and generosity, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support.

Yours in faith and gratitude,
