The Reclaiming Christ’s Mission Together campaign has entered the second phase and is gaining momentum. Forty-two parishes are participating in Block 2 and have formed their campaign committees and campaign activity calendars. Thanks to the pastors and campaign leaders in the parishes, Block 2 is off to a successful beginning!
In order to share campaign information with all parishioners, over 170 receptions have been scheduled to take place between February and May 2015. Bishop Barber has generously given of his time to be present at many of these receptions. In addition several volunteers from the Chancery staff have committed to attend the remaining receptions to share more information and benefits of the campaign.
Each parish has conducted a campaign kick-off weekend, during which, parishioners were asked to volunteer to assist with campaign activities. The results of these efforts are a true testament to the dedication of the parishioners in the Oakland Diocese, as thousands of parishioners committed to give generously of their time to make the campaign a success.
To find more information on when your parish is hosting receptions, please call your parish office, or for more information about the campaign, please contact Darren Moore at 510-271-1945.
