Transformative Encounters with Christ
As a Catholic school system, our mission – Forming disciples of Jesus Christ through Catholic educational excellence – quite literally means we represent the future of the global Church. This is an important job, and it is one our educators do not take lightly.
Holy Family Catholic Schools, by God’s grace and in partnership with families and parishes, empowers students to generously live an integrated life-long and joy-filled faith through comprehensive Catholic formation and meaningful sacramental experiences.
Key Catholic faith formation initiatives:
- Develop a personalized religion curriculum that provides a comprehensive foundation in the Catholic faith and inspires students to identify their calling and live their life in communion with the Church.
- Establish a campus ministry fund to support student-driven missionary work surrounding the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.
- Sequence local, national and global service offerings K-12.
- Partner with local pastors to implement faith educational programming for faculty to support faith-rich curriculum and experiences.
Determining Your Campaign Gift
How Much Can I Afford to Pledge?
While every act of charity represents s uniquely motivated and prayerful decision, considering your gift amount as a percentage of your annual household earnings and overall charitable giving can be a helpful approach to budgeting your five-year campaign contribution. Consider pledging one percent of your annual earnings each year for the course of the five-year campaign.
As an example: A family with a household income of $200,000 might consider a gift of $2,000 per year for a total gift of $10,000 in five years. Use the calculator on the right to help determine a pledge that fits your budget.
