Love One Another Capital Campaign

Campaign and Project Update 5/28/24

Resurrection Parish has received pledges in the amount of $289,355 which will be fulfilled over a 5-year period.  Of that total, our Parish will receive $218,170 and 100% of any future donations. 

Over the past several months, we have been meeting with a decorator and reviewing options for the paint scheme, flooring, and pews.  We received a proposed rendering and are awaiting quotes for painting and flooring.   A social gathering will be held in June to share the proposed rendering and preliminary costs with parishioners.

Thank you for your patience.  We look forward to getting together with all of you soon.

The Parish share of the funds from these pledges will go toward our parish needs:

  • Painting the church interior
  • Updating the aging pews
  • Replacing the carpet

Please note, there is not a direct relationship between the amount of pledges received and the cost of the projects noted above. The Pastoral Council is in the beginning stages of working with a design committee to determine the scope and estimated costs of these projects.

The Archdiocese share of the funds from these pledges as of 11/17/23 is $71,185 (with the assumption all pledges will be fulfilled). It will go toward Catholic ministries for:

  • Saint Francis de Sales Seminary with support for our Seminarians, Priests, Deacons and lay ministers.

Thank you for your generosity and faithfulness to the Love One Another Campaign.

Frequently Asked Questions about Pledges

Who is being asked to pledge to the Love One Another Campaign?

All households in all parishes of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee will be asked to prayerfully consider a five-year commitment

Why does the campaign request five-year pledges?

Pledges payable over five years allow families to budget their contributions in monthly or annual payments. Most of us can make larger commitments over time than we might be able to all-at-once. Five-year pledges help ensure we can meet our parish's campaign goal and fund the needs of the parish and important Catholic ministries in our 1- counties of southeastern Wisconsin.

When do pledge payments begin?

Each family determines the timing and frequency of their pledge payments and how payments are made.
