Renew + Rebuild
As we announced last weekend, at all the Sunday Masses, we have begun the public phase of Blessed Sacrament’s Renew + Rebuild Capital Campaign. We are off to a great start but we need everyone's help if the campaign is to be successful. Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions:
1) What is the financial goal for the campaign?
The goal is $771,000. This amount includes this year’s Cardinal Appeal.
2) Is there going to be a Cardinal’s Appeal campaign run in Blessed Sacrament this year?
There is not. No one should be receiving anything from the Cardinal’s Appeal this year. If you do, please let us know. Every parish, that is going through Renew + Rebuild, will not be running a Cardinal’s Appeal campaign.
3) What are some of the projects that we would like to accomplish with the money that is raised?
There are many projects that we would like to accomplish. We would like to paint the entire Church from top to bottom. It has not been totally painted in over 46 years. Also, we desperately need to clean the ceiling. There is so much dirt and dust up there. As a matter of fact, this dirt and dust frequently falls down and creates a mess where it lands. Also, the carpet in the Sanctuary has many burn marks in it. When we remove that carpet, we can see the marble underneath it that has remained hidden for years. The stained glass windows need repair. There is artwork that has been covered over by dirt and grime. It would be great to see this again. The floor in the lobby needs to be replaced. These are some of the projects.
Our parish Religious Education Program is in need of volunteer teachers and substitute teachers. If you are called to evangelize the next generation of Catholic faithful, please contact the Religious Education Office at (914) 235-7311.
We are using an important communication tool in order to connect with our Parishioners. It is called “Flocknote”. During these past few months, we were able to send a text or e-mail message to over 300 Parishioners who are registered with our Parish Flocknote Program. In the e-mail or text, we were able to remind these Parishioners of the times for different Masses, services, devotions, novenas, and other special events that were taking place here at Blessed Sacrament. We even reminded those on our Parish Flocknote list, to move their clock back one hour, when the time changed. We will continue to use this important communication tool to keep our Parishioners informed about Mass schedules and other important events at Blessed Sacrament. In order to enroll in our Flocknote program, text bsparishnr to 84576 or visit our Parish at www.flocknote.com/BSNewRochelle
