Witness to Hope is a historic $65 million capital campaign in the Diocese of Lansing. Our Bishop has called upon each of us as individuals and as parishes to pray about how to live out the Great Commission. Jesus places this evangelical work in the heart of every disciple, and we are invited to a deeper encounter with the Lord so as to respond more faithfully to Christ’s saving work in us and in the world. Financial generosity is one expression of how we witness to the hope of His saving message and build His kingdom. It is not something that we do grudgingly or as a token response. We place ourselves together with tens of thousands of our sisters and brothers across the diocese and collectively reach out as witnesses to the hope we have in the Lord Jesus our Savior.
St. John the Evangelist will be fundraising $2 million over the next five years as our parish goal toward this diocesan campaign, which will serve both parish needs and diocesan needs.
