Thanks be to God and to the help of the Holy Angels! Just this week we were able to meet our $100,000 challenge! Now we are at $461,000 in our efforts to raise $600,000 by the end of December.
The Msgr. O’Callaghan Divine Mercy Center will be the centerpiece of MDM’s envisioned retreat complex. It will provide the basic necessities of kitchen, dining area, and meeting space meeting space for the Mission — all of which we sorely need. It will also allow us to transform St. Michael Hall into a permanent dormitory so that we can begin our “Encounter With Jesus” retreats again.
As many of you know, a donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, has promised to give us $300,000 a year for three years (2013-2015) —IF we raise a matching $300,000 each year. In September we went beyond our $300,000 minimum goal for 2013—thanks to the help of the Holy Angels and to the generosity of so many of you, our earthly angels! This assures us of receiving this year’s $300,000 in matching funds. Our ultimately (earthly!) goal for 2013 is $600,000. This amount, plus the $300,000 in matching funds will give us a total of $900,000 in the bank—the amount we need in order to break ground on the Msgr. O’Callaghan Center.
Another friend of ours, Jerry Anz, is raising money toward the Center’s kitchen, in memory of his beloved wife, Caroline. We feel very honored to be the beneficiaries of his efforts. All of these efforts combine to make us believe that God wants this Center to be constructed sooner rather than later.
We are anxious to see the Center under construction. We feel a sense of urgency to create the retreat center and sanctuary that will spread the message and ministry of God’s mercy—year round and to many more people.
