ARCHDIOCESE OF SAN ANTONIO: CAPITAL CAMPAIGN. “Greetings in the Lord Jesus! As you know, the archdiocese recently contracted with the Steier Group to examine the feasibility and potential support for an archdiocesan capital campaign…. As the people of the archdiocese did decades ago when they undertook the first and only capital campaign in our history, we need to establish a legacy that will make a difference in the lives that follow. It is an exciting time, and I know we will be blessed by an outpouring of generosity. Please join me in praying that the Holy Spirit will continue to guide our ministry efforts as the archdiocese expands and grows at an exponential pace. With every assurance of prayer and best wishes for all, I remain, Sincerely yours in Christ,” Most Reverend Gustavo García-Siller, MSpS Archbishop of San Antonio. A complete text of the message is available at https://www.archsa.org/blog/capital-campaign The goal for our parish of Our Lady of Sorrows is: $143.000 (ONE HUNDRED FORTY THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS) during the period of 3 years. Capital Campaign is different from the Archbishop Annual Appeal
