Questions and Answers

What is the 2019 St. Dominic Catholic Parish  Believe and Belong Appeal?

It is our annual parish-wide effort to renew our stewardship commitments of prayer, service and treasure; to steward the blessings received from God, for the benefit of all.

Why did we choose the theme "Believe & Belong"?

We say the creed every time we celebrate Mass. It is what we BELIEVE. It is our story. It is who we are. As a family of faithful believers, we BELONG to one another and to our God. Sharing the Word and celebrating the Eucharist together fosters fraternity and makes us a holy and missionary community. A community that cherishes the small gestures of love, whose members care for one another and create a welcoming environment, is a place where the risen Lord is present, sanctifying the community in accordance with the Father's plans.

What are the Annual Stewardship goals for our Love without Limits Campaign?

This year, in addition to supporting our current ministries and operating expenses, we ask you to support three important goals:

  • Eliminate formation fees: remove the financial barrier to the high school and middle school programs by eliminating formation fees: Price tag - $20,000

  • Reduce tuition: We believe in Catholic education and making it affordable to all. Our goal is to reduce tuition by $500 per student. To reach that goal we need about $200,000..

  • Fund outreach: Provide additional funds to outreach ministry resulting in the reducation of the number of separate appeals throughout the year. Our goal is to offer about $30,000.

What were the 201 fiscal year results?

The budget for fiscal year end 6/30/17 was $1,841,650. The Actual for 7/1/16 through 6/30/17 was $1,860,996. We continue to be grateful for your generous response in support of our mission and ministries.

Sharing the Vision Campaign Brochure
 

What are the Capital Fund Goals for our Sharing the Vision Campaign?

  • Debit Reduction: The first priority of this campaign is to raise a minimum of $875,000 and refinance the remaining debt from the renovation of the church, the building of the Parish Athletic Facility and the creation of the Parish Arts & Activities Center. Our current debt is now under $1 million. The campaign has allowed for $625,000 of debt reduction to date, with an additional $50,000 planned for 2017 and $200,000 in 2018.

  • Deferred Maintenance: Estimated investment of $400,000 would be used for immediate maintenance needs, lengthen life expectancy, and prevent premature replacement including the mechanicals, (heating and cooling) and preventative maintenance of our roofs.  Immediate needs have been addressed and monies have been set aside to build a reserve for HVAC roof repair, and parking lot concerns. 

  • Campus-wide Safety and Security: Estimated investment of $200,000 would allow us t install new secured entrances for the church, Parish Center, main school entrance, Parish Arts & Activities Center, K4 and Middle School entrances, a campus-wide exterior video/camera system, evacuation signage, new fire alarm system, and new locks on the main exterior doors. Completed projects included a new school building entrance with secured access, campus-wide security cameras, electronic access for key doors and new keys/locking system.  

  • School Revitalization: Estimated investment of $300,000 may be used toward updated classrooms, hallways, new flooring, including the cafeteria. This past summer, monies were directed toward our early childhood education wing with new ceilings lighting, and fresh paint. As more pledge and gifts are received, phase 2 may include new flooring, countertops, and cabinets.  

  • Marcy Center Revitalization: Estimated investment of $250,000 would be used for flooring, paint, a fully functioning kitchen, and additional audio-visual capabilities. This project was part of our 2008 Master Plan for Capital Improvements.

  • South Narthex Expansion: Estimated investment of $725,000 would create a more welcoming, inviting gathering space before and after Masses, weddings, funerals, and the many other services and special events held in our church. This project was part of our 2008 Master Plan for Capital Improvements.

  • Campus-wide updates and contingency costs: Estimated Investment of $175,000 would allow improved youth ministry facilities, audio-video presentation systems in the church and narthexes, updates to the Parish Center, rectory, and curb appeal of the parish shed and dumpster area.

Only those projects covered by the amount of monies pledged will be undertaken, in the priority order listed. Simply put, no additional debt will be incurred for any of the projects.

What would you like me to consider giving to achieve our Capital Fund Goals?

  • Making a new final year commitment to our Sharing the Vision Campaign

  • Making a one-time additional gift over and above current 3-year commitment

  • Praying for God’s blessings upon our campaign and our parish

May the grace of the Holy Spirit lead you as you pray over your decision.
