• Forward with Faith: Archdiocesan Campaign

  • Introduction

  • The Archdiocese of Hartford is blessed to be so much more than any individual community. Over the past 175 years, our parish communities have been bound together by our faith and shared commitment to the vibrancy of our parishes, our schools, and our ministries. Now is a pivotal moment for our generation to do the same.

    To that end, we are supporting Forward with Faith, a landmark campaign being led by the Hartford Bishops’ Foundation to:
    - invest in the spiritual and economic well-being of our parishes
    - to provide peerless educational opportunities to students, volunteers, and parish leaders
    - to enhance the reach and capabilities of Catholic Charities and other social service providers
    - to innovate to meet the evolving needs of Catholics and non- Catholics alike across our Archdiocese.

    This effort should not be mistaken for the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal, which is used to maintain the day-to-day operations of the Archdiocese. The mission of this campaign is to invest in long-term and extraordinary projects, entities, and services that are integral to the long-term sustainability of the Archdiocese.

    St. Margaret Church is one of the 11 pilot parishes that will lead the way for this historic effort by conducting our campaign now and over the next few months to address the needs of the Archdiocese as well as those within our parish community.

    A group of parishioners have formed a committee to assist Fr. Dan with this project. We are grateful for their leadership and dedication on behalf of our parish. If you hear from one of these volunteers, please meet with them, kindly listen to their presentation, and prayerfully consider supporting this vital undertaking, as it will be a great benefit to our Church.

    Over the next few months, all of you will be hearing more about the campaign as we seek to invite everyone to participate in this extraordinary effort.

    May the Holy Spirit guide and direct our efforts as we begin this historic journey together. Please join us in praying for our success throughout the Forward with Faith campaign. Thank you all and may God bless you.
