As you will remember, we held a special forum a few weeks back that laid out the focus points for this reoriented Bicentennial Capital Campaign. We shared how the Building and Grounds and Finance Committees, and the Vestry, all agreed that it was good to focus on a more functional campaign at this point in our common life. We are setting aside the proposed plans on the nave and narthex (with hopes to revisit them soon) in order to highlight key areas of our parish’s life that need attention: Christian Education space for youth and children, bathrooms, office roofing, easier access at key points to the building, and signage. We feel we are well-equipped to focus on these areas since improvements here will enable us to welcome even more to the community for opportunities of prayer, compassion, and belonging.
To that end, you will soon receive a packet in the mail with a brochure and pledge card. I invite you to prayerfully consider how you may share in this work. Especially given continued uncertainties, it felt responsible to streamline our plans at this point in a way that still honored the celebration of two centuries of common prayer.
We are setting a target gathering date of Sunday, May 12 to return pledges. For those who already made (and possibly even fulfilled) a pledge, the Bicentennial Committee will reach out to make sure to clarify the intention and situation of your prior pledge. In mid-May, we will assess where we are and look at next steps around scheduling and planning. You can find a link below to access the materials online should you prefer to do so. And, as always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or the wardens. We would be glad to meet with you as we look toward this fantastic celebration!
With enormous gratitude,
