We Stand With Christ Capital Campaign

The Parish ICONCampaign StatusDiocese of Bridgeport logo

We embarked upon the We Stand With Christ Campaign in 2021 with an ambitious goal of raising $3.5 million in pledges to fund several important initiatives at our Parish.  These included establishing a parish-wide fund for ministry to the marginalized, creating larger gathering spaces both inside and outside St. Catherine Church, and finally, upgrading our St. Agnes campus in order to lay the foundation for a spiritual life center.  Each of these three initiatives were carefully planned by our Parish Leadership to provide us with a roadmap for our Parish’s future in a post-pandemic age.
We are pleased to announce that we raised almost $3.7 million in pledges (as of March 2022), exceeding our $3.5 million challenge goal!  We especially want to thank the 341 families that participated in this campaign.  Your generosity will have an impact for generations!  Included in our $3.7 million total was a $500,000 matching gift from an anonymous donor who matched gifts beginning in late November 2021.
Since our formal fundraising period has concluded, we are now in the redemption phase of our campaign.  We are encouraging everyone to pay their pledges in a timely manner, as this will help us to begin our capital projects.  Payments on We Stand With Christ pledges can be made by visiting www.GiveCentral.org/WSWCFor those interested in making a stock/securities transfer or gift from their donor advised fund, please use these instructions.
We also have a very special opportunity to make an impact on this campaign.  Our Parish’s Finance Council has formed a Cash and Investments Committee to make sure the funds received are appropriately safeguarded, and the Buildings & Grounds Committee has begun project planning for all three major capital campaign projects. The B&G Committee is seeking volunteers to assist in designing, scoping, contracting and overseeing these critical initiatives on both campuses.  If you are interested in assisting, please contact Brigid Quinn (This email address is being protected from spambots.

May God Bless you and thank you for your interest in supporting our Parish and its growth into the future!
