Fr. Samuel's e-Epistle for Dec. 4, 2019
Encountering Christ Diocese of Austin Capital Campaign
Over the past four months Emmaus parishioners have been engaged in the Diocesan Encountering Christ Campaign and have generously pledged $1,739,215.00. Thirty percent of all contributions will be returned to Emmaus and used toward our upcoming construction projects...over $521,000 to date! I am extremely grateful to all who have participated thus far to help make this initiative a success.
As we move into the final stage of the campaign, at all Masses this weekend, Fr. Barry and I will present a brief campaign update and ask everyone to complete a pledge card. It is vital that we receive a pledge card back from every family, as this will provide the necessary information to complete the diocesan campaign.
Pledge card options include:
Yes - we agree to pledge.
Amen – We have already made a pledge.
Praying - We are thinking about our decision, please call us.
Prayers - We are unable to make a pledge at this time, but offer our prayers.
Parish campaign volunteers will be in the narthex to answer questions after all Masses. Thank you for your continued support of Emmaus and the Diocese of Austin.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Samuel Hose
