We still need more families to make a pledge of any generous amount that one can donate!


Please consider praying to God about the amount that you would like to make to our campaign. Personally, I would like to ask those registered families who haven’t yet pledged to give at least $1 dollar each day, #30 dollars each month, $360 dollars per year. At the end of the campaign, you can be proud of yourselves knowing that you have contributed $1,080 dollars for the campaign.

May God grants us more families who would consider doing so. When it is possible, of course, please consider contributing more. Realize that the more we have, the sooner we will be able to build. 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, more than 60 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 each and every one of you for your love, prayer, participation and generosity.
May God reward and bless you and your family abundantly.


Building Project Update

St. Cecilia Catholic Church has selected FINN Construction to head up its building project. The Parish is confident that FINN can deliver on time and with reasonable cost a meeting and building room that will serve the needs of the community for many years to come. The Parish welcomes the FINN Construction Team and looks forward to working with them in the coming weeks and months ahead. Look for ground breaking to occur at the end of June, beginning of July! More information to follow soon.

 


Your 2021 Charitable Contribution Statements

As of the end of January 2022,  St. Cecilia Church has sent out all 2021 Charitable Contribution Statement that will only include two contribution funds: your 2021 Sunday Contribution and 2021 Other Contribution because all of your building fund donations are now recorded with the Diocesan OCF. Keep this in mind when preparing your taxes – St. Cecilia to provide your 2021 Parish Contribution Statement and the Diocesan OCF Office will send you your Capital Campaign contribution statement.

Charitable Donations for 2022

To make an IRA charitable rollover gift in 2022 to support all the various programs and ministries you love here at St. Cecilia.

Benefits:

. You pay no income taxes on the gift. The transfer generates neither taxable income nor a tax deduction, so you benefit even if you do not itemize your tax deductions.

. If you have not taken your required minimum distribution for the year, your IRA charitable rollover gift can satisfy all or part of it.

. You can support St. Cecilia from what might otherwise be the most highly taxed asset in your estate.

How It Works:

. You must be 70 ½ years old or more at the time of your gift.

. You may transfer up to $100,000 directly from your IRA to St. Cecilia each year.

. Contact your IRA administrator to transfer your IRA directly to St. Cecilia.

May God constantly bless you and your family, and may God reward your generously sacrificial gifts. For more information, please contact Deacon Bill at the parish office 714-544-3250, Ext. 12.  Thank you!


Giving Options

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.

Campaign Prayer

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.

Oración de la Nuestra Campaña

Padre Celestial, Cuya generosidad no puede ser menos, abre nuestros corazones a las necesidades de nuestra parroquia mientras discernimos en oración nuestra generosa contribución de sacrificio a nuestra campaña capital para expandir nuestro campus de la Iglesia para que podamos conocerte, amarte y servirte mejor, a ti y a nuestro prójimo y podamos cumplir la tarea de evangelización que nos has encomendado. 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.

Kinh Cầu Nguyện cho chương trình Gây Quỹ

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.
