Living Our Faith, Building Our Future
for three fiscal year pledge
July 2018 to June 2021
One Dollar Each Day – One Thousand Three Years
As of today, we have close to 400 donors who have pledged a total of $2.5 million dollars. I thank you so very much each and every one of you for your love, prayer, support and generosity. May God reward and bless you and your family abundantly. Please consider praying to God about the amount that you would like to make to our campaign over the three year pledge period (36 months), starting July 2018 and ending June 2021. Personally, I would like to ask those registered families who haven’t yet pledged to give at least $1 dollar each day, $30 dollar each month, $360 dollar per year, during this period. At the end of the campaign, you can be proud of yourselves knowing that you have contributed $1,080 dollars for the campaign. I pray that God grants us at least 1,600 families more who would consider doing so. When it is possible, of course, I would like you to consider contributing more. Realize that the more we have, the sooner we will be able to build. Believe it when I say that, with the help of God, we will build a solid faith foundation for the next generation of faithful to stand upon. Know that we are no different, 61 years later, than our founding pastors and parishioners who made the same sacrifice to invest in building the church, school, hall, kitchen and office that we use today with the same intention – spreading the Gospel of Christ throughout the world. Thank you so very much! May God bless you and your family and may He reward your generously sacrificial gift. Remember…… God loves you and so do I.
Please consider making Your Sacrificial-Gift to support our St. Cecilia Parish’s Capital Campaign to build our newly Pastoral Center building. We are deeply grateful for your generosity and loving support throughout the year and in particular Your-Sacrificial-Gift. Please be assured that we send the tax deductible letter to you toward the end of January 2019. Please do not hesitate to contact Deacon Bill Weeks, our Business Manager, at 714-544-3250, Ext. 12, or Fr. Bao Thai at 714-544-3250, Ext. 14. Thank you for your charitable and sacrificial giving! May God bless you abundantly!
Our Living Our Faith, Building Our Future Campaign’s purpose is to raise the funds required to build a Meeting and Education Center, an Administration Center, and to remodel the existing offices which will expand the kitchen, upgrade and renovate the restrooms, and create a Youth Center
A minimum goal of $4M has been established, which will enable us to build a Meeting & Education Center. A challenge goal of $5M has also been set which, if met, will enable us to build the Meeting and Education Center and provide $1M toward the Administration Center. Finally, reaching our ultimate goal of $7M will allow us to build the 2 Centers, build the Administration Center, and remodel the existing offices with a Youth Center, remodeled kitchen, update restrooms. We will also update hall flooring, sound system, as well as add projection capabilities.
In order to reach our financial objectives, we will need both a substantial number of givers and a few, fairly substantial gifts as this Chart of Gifts illustrates
There are a number of special opportunities available to donors of qualifying gift amounts that make possible specific, tangible benefits and offer the donor the unique chance to dedicate these gifts in honor or memory of whomever they choose.
Gift amounts do not necessarily reflect the item’s exact cost. Rather, they are based on the item’s prominence, our needs, and our community’s gift abilities. Gift contributions may be made over the entire three-year giving period. Recognition will be given when the gift is received in full.

Pledges payable over three years are easier for many, enable most to make larger gifts than they otherwise might outright, and are therefore essential to meeting our goal. Gifts may be made in monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual installments at the donor’s discretion. A 10% initial investment is encouraged.
Non-cash gifts are an additional or alternative way you can support our cause. You may, for example, wish to consider gifts of securities such as stocks and bonds; gifts of real estate; or even personal property such as artwork, automobiles, jewelry, and antiques.
Deferred gifts are another option you may wish to consider. These are gifts that can be given or arranged for now, but will not be received until later. They include gifts through a person’s will by bequest, gifts of life insurance policies or annuities, and gifts in trust.

Heavenly Father, whose generosity cannot be outdone, open our hearts to the needs of our parish as we prayerfully discern our generous sacrificial contribution to our capital campaign to expand our Church campus so we may better know, love, and serve You and our neighbor and may fulfill the task of evangelization that You have entrusted to us. We ask Your blessings and rewards on those who will donate their prayers, time, talents, and financial resources to this most worthy cause. Through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe and St. Cecilia, in Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

Te pedimos tus bendiciones y recompensas para aquellos que donarán sus oraciones, tiempo, talentos, y recursos financieros para esta causa tan valiosa. Por la intercesión de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe y Santa Cecilia, en el nombre de Jesús oramos. Amén.

Lạy Cha trên trời, Đấng từ bi nhân hậu, xin mở rộng tâm hồn của chúng con để đáp ứng những nhu cầu cần thiết của giáo xứ như khi chúng còn thiết tha khẩn cầu, những hy sinh đóng góp cho chiến dịch vận động để mở rộng khuôn viên Nhà Thờ của chúng con để chúng còn nhận biết, yêu thương, phục vụ Chúa và tha nhân tốt dep hơn và có thể hoàn thành sứ mệnh loan báo tin mừng mà Ngài đã ủy thác cho chúng con. Chúng con cầu xin Ngài ban phước và thưởng công bội hậu cho những ai dâng lời cầu nguyện, hiến dâng thời gian, tài năng và tài chính cho chương trình xây dựng hữu ích này. Qua sự cầu bàu của Đức Mẹ Guadalupe và Thánh Cecilia, chúng con cầu xin vì danh Chúa Giêsu Kitô Chúa chúng con. Amen.
