The Diocese of Richmond has announced the Living Our Mission capital campaign over the next two years. This historic campaign has set a goal of $65 million dollars and will benefit each parish, prepare for the future of our church, support our clergy, and advance the shared mission of the diocese. The campaign has selected twelve pilot parishes that have already started raising money towards their parish goals. The campaign prayer sets the tone:
Lord God, hear our humble prayer. Empower us with your grace to faithfully live the mission entrusted to us by Christ. Keep our hearts and minds fixed on Jesus so we might continue the sacred work He began with self-sacrificing generosity.
With the help of Mary, our Mother, may we bear witness to the glory of God with great joy. Bless this campaign by igniting a new enthusiasm for living our faith and fulfilling our tremendous mission.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our hope, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
