Dear Parishioners,

We're conducting a planning study at Holy Cross Catholic Church. I trust that you all by now have received the detailed fact sheet about our proposed projects. As you spend time reviewing the plans, I would like to provide further information about the planning study.

Q. What is a planning study?

A. It is an assessment used to gauge support for a capital campaign to address some, or all, of the needs identified in the fact sheet. The study will tell us which projects parishioners deem to be most important and help guide our planning for a potential fundraising effort.

Q. Would you please explain this process?

A. The Steier Group, a development firm, is conducting the study. The goal is to collect data from participants answering questions such as: Is the parish in favor of a campaign? Who will serve as volunteers? How much support can we expect to raise if we conduct a campaign?

Dear Parishioners,

We need your input!

Beginning Monday, Jan. 8, we'll conduct a comprehensive survey of the entire parish. This planning study follows an extensive process that helped produce our master plan. Before making any final decisions regarding the long-range plan for Holy Cross Catholic Church, we need to hear from you.

We're asking everyone to share their thoughts regarding our needs and the possibility of conducting a major fundraising effort. Your feedback will enable us to determine potential support for the master plan projects. If we, as a faith community, choose to move forward, the planning study will also provide us with information to identify prospective campaign leaders and to establish a realistic campaign goal.
