STRENGTHENING OUR PARISHES
Our local parish is where we experience the gift of sacramental grace. In the Eucharist, we remember and receive the body and blood of our Savior, for the forgiveness of sins and in the hope of heaven.
To acknowledge and strengthen the ministry of local parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Denver, “we have created the Parish Matching Grant Program to help people leave a legacy for their love of Jesus Christ and their parish,” said Deacon Steve Stemper, CEO and President of The Catholic Foundation.
In the first such program of its kind, the Foundation approved a $1 million matching grant program available to 100 archdiocesan parishes to encourage giving to parishes for capital or operating and maintenance needs.
This week’s edition of the Denver Catholic Register featured this announcement in a front-page story. See the article.
Parish pastors have received a letter from Deacon Steve about the program.
