PARISH NEWS & UPCOMING EVENTS:
RENEW AND REBUILD: The New York Archdiocese “Renew and Rebuild” campaign has begun at Holy Innocents. This is a major five year capital campaign which will address the infrastructure needs at our parish and support important archdiocesan objectives. Monies raised will be shared (26% to archdiocese, 74% to Holy Innocents) and the first year of this campaign will include the 2017 Cardinal’s Appeal. The archdiocesan Cardinal’s Appeal will return in 2018.
We have identified specific areas that are in need of attention at Holy Innocents. Replacing the HVAC is our number one financial obligation and repairs are underway. Other needs identified include improving the acoustics in the social hall, installing security cameras, and repairing the rectory roof. Projects will be scheduled based on the amount of money raised. I and parish volunteers have already begun contacting parishioners for this campaign and solicitations will continue by phone and by mail as “Renew and Rebuild is rolled out in full this autumn.
I thank you sincerely for your prayerful support of this major financial initiative which will help sustain our parish. Father Hugh Burns, OP
