United Way donors: designate your gift to Holy Innocents School
November 7, 2016
This past summer Pope Francis challenged thousands of young people at World Youth Day in Poland when he said: “Jesus is inviting you, calling you to leave your mark on life, to leave a mark on history; your own and that of many others as well.” Our Holy Father’s words not only have meaning for our young people, but they have meaning for all of us, as we strive to RSVP to Jesus’s Invitation.
I am calling on all of the alumni of Holy Innocents parish to respond to our Holy Father’s words. As a proud graduate of this wonderful Catholic school you know that who you are today has very much to do with your years at Holy Inn. Your grade school education not only prepared you for high school, but those memorable years prepared you for life. And now I am asking you to please make a return on your parents’ investment of years ago.
As you can see with the enclosed Annual Report we have been busy raising money to keep our tuition as affordable as possible. Our Appeal this year not only hopes to raise money for tuition assistance but we want to raise money for the refurbishment of our school hall. Our school hall has helped greatly in building the community that is Holy Innocents. It receives much use every day and now is in need of repair. It needs a new roof and a new floor. It needs new windows and lights. And it needs to be painted. Initial estimates for these projects are exceeding $300,000. Yes, a costly venture but very necessary as we look to the future of Holy Inn. Please designate on the enclosed envelope where you wish to direct your donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
Next year our parish is celebrating its 90th anniversary. Monsignor Lynch founded the parish on its feast day, December 28, 1927, and he built the parish one building at a time. We will keep you informed throughout next year as we plan to celebrate this milestone with a 90th Anniversary Gala next Fall. During these past 90 years Holy Innocents School has fostered many leaders of our community through its excellence in teaching and helping students and families to know that Jesus is the reason for the dignity due each person.
Thanks in advance for considering this request. I look forward to seeing you at next year’s Gala and celebrating 90 years of Holy Innocents history with you.
Rev. Thomas M. Higgins
