Bishop Malooly has named a Lay Executive Committee for the Sustaining Hope for the Future campaign, the $28 million diocesan fundraising effort.
The 22-member group, which held its first meeting April 11, consists of men and women from every area of the diocese who will provide the bishop their input and strategies for the fundraising. The money raised by Sustaining Hope for the Future will be used to fund a lay pension plan for parish and diocesan employees, priests’ retirement needs, diocesan ministries and for strengthening and sustaining parish needs.
