Building Today for Tomorrow

Preparing to Celebrate

A couple of years from now, Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish will celebrate two important anniversaries: in 2021, the 50th anniversary of the dedication of our church building, and in 2022, the 75th anniversary of the establishment of our parish.  Now is the time for our parish family to begin preparing spiritually for these celebrations, expressing our gratitude to God for all of the gifts and blessings that he has poured upon us and renewing our discipleship as members of our OLG parish community.  It is in that spirit that we have continued the “Building Today for Tomorrow" campaign first begun following the 50th anniversary of the parish in 1997.

Building Today for Tomorrow

Long-time parishioners will remember that in the years following the 50th anniversary of the parish, the Building Today for Tomorrow Capital Campaign was begun to raise funds to renovate Coleman Center and for other improvements on our parish campus.  The Building Today for Tomorrow Capital Campaign was never officially closed out, although it was inactive for some years.  As part of our preparation to celebrate the anniversaries of the dedication of our church building in 2021 and establishment of our parish in 2022, we have continued the Building Today for Tomorrow Capital Campaign in conjunction with the annual diocesan Pastoral Services Appeal.  The Capital Campaign will conclude in our 75th-anniversary year on December 31, 2022.

Truly “Building Today for Tomorrow” must be about more than just raising funds, though.  It must include faith renewal and evangelization - building on our faith and discipleship as well as building on the membership of our OLG parish community, today for tomorrow.  Two ways of doing so are the evangelization program Alpha and the faith renewal video and study program Catholicism by Bishop Robert Barron.
