Answering Your Important Questions

St. Patrick Parish is available to answer all of your important questions relating to the Special Appeal. Find answers to commonly asked questions below, and contact us to receive answers to all other inquiries.

Why do we need a Special Appeal?

“Growing Together as a Family of Faith” is necessary in order to ensure that St. Patrick Parish is able to accommodate the growing faith that we have witnessed in recent years. This faith—which encourages more people to receive the sacraments, join parish ministries, and enroll their children in St. Patrick School and PREP—is truly remarkable, and we must do all we can to feed it with adequate facilities for growth.

When can I begin to contribute?

We encourage you to make a contribution at your convenience. We are prepared to be flexible when accepting donations and will work with parishioners to map out their gift over the course of three years. If you are ready to commit to a donation, please speak to Father Redcay. We are able to accept cash, checks, credit cards, or donated securities. We are also able to accept online donations.

The parish is financially stable. Is now the right time for a Special Appeal?

Thanks to the generosity of our parishioners, St. Patrick Parish is completely debt-free, which makes now the perfect time to kick off the “Growing Together as a Family of Faith” Special Appeal. Due to our parish’s strong financial status, you can be sure that every penny of your donation will be contributed directly to the goals of the appeal; additionally, while most parish appeals are carried out due to a lack of funds and resources, ours is fueled by an abundance of faith that is already alive in our church.

I can only donate a small amount—will my contribution matter?

Our plan to raise $6 million will benefit greatly from the generosity of all parishioners, no matter the size of their gift. We encourage you to make a contribution that you think is appropriate. St. Patrick’s is deeply grateful for any and all donations we receive.
