Dear Friend of St. Josaphat,

 

Thank you for being a member of our community! I have some exciting news I would like to share with you.

 

Over the past year, our Facilities Committee has been assessing our campus needs and has developed a plan to address our maintenance and safety priorities. We are also exploring a new vision for our future and would love to get your thoughts in this 5-minute survey.

 

To help us gather insights from our entire community, we have partnered with CCS Fundraising (CCS) who has done extensive work with local parishes and the Archdiocese of Chicago. They are conducting a feasibility study on our behalf. The results of this study will provide input on how a potential fundraising campaign would support our needs and vision.

 

We are seeking your feedback to help us prioritize the projects identified in the facilities planning process, namely:

 

  • Replenishing funds used to pay for church and school boilers
  • Addressing critical maintenance needs: sanctuary water damage, rectory roof, and church doors and windows
  • Renovating the Fr. Grassi Community Park, including the installation of gates to provide a safe environment for our children to play and run without any hazards
  • Planning for long-term maintenance of the school roof, masonry, and other parish equipment nearing the end of their lifespan
  • Building a new parish center and community gym

 

I am inviting you to participate in this brief online survey by Sunday, June 30. It should take no more than five minutes and your counsel is invaluable. For more details, please review this background information. This is not a solicitation for funds, though funding is part of the range of topics. Rather, this is an opportunity to plan for a strong future for St. Josaphat.

 

Thank you in advance for your thoughtful feedback and your continued dedication to St. Josaphat.

 

In Christ,
