My Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
It is with great hope and joy that we begin the Our Faith…Our Future Capital Campaign to build upon the foundation laid by previous generations of faithful Catholics in the Mid-Ohio Valley Region. Our new venture will help us fulfill our mission, to continue to pursue excellence in the Catholic tradition; the formation of the mind, body and soul.
Catholic education has been of paramount importance to all of us as a community. Since 1856, Catholic educated young men and women have given back to our community in many ways. A revitalized and rededicated school will ensure the tradition of excellence well into the future. Developing the spiritual, intellectual, and leadership potential of our young people has been the hallmark of our mission.
All of our adult lives we have been involved in Catholic Schools. We have four children who are graduates of Parkersburg Catholic High School. Our children have all chosen to send their children to Catholic schools-13 grandchildren in 3 Catholic systems. We know and strongly believe in the values reinforced in our school system and feel that in our world today, more then ever, Catholic education is vital.
As General Co-Chairs, we are asking you for your help in taking responsibility for this campaign’s financial success. To achieve our goal and meet the needs outlined in this brochure, we are asking everyone to consider a gift of financial support. Whether you are an alumni, a member of a local parish, a business person, or a parent of a current or future student, we all share ownership of our school and its success. Please read through the information presented in this brochure and consider making a gift out of sacrifice and not convenience. Your monetary sacrifice is a gift that reflects the blessings God has bestowed upon you and your family.
May the Lord bless you for your generosity.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Thomas & Leta McCarty
Our Faith…Our Future
