Sunday, October 27, 2019

Dear Friends,

Today we kick off 2020 Vision: Rebuild, Renew, Restore! A Capital Campaign to renovate the Parish Center & Gymnasium.

Scope of the Project

New Paint in Parish Center Foyer, Gym, & Concession Stands

New Flooring & Renovation in Foyer & Concession Stands

Asbestos Removal & New Flooring in Gym

New Lighting in Foyer, Restrooms & Concession Stands

Project Date

May 2020-August 2020

Cost of the Project


The Good News

We already have $56,750 raised and in the bank!

The Request

An appeal to the parish community to gift the remaining funds needed to complete the project.

The Parish Center was built in the early 1980s and since then has seen a lot of action! All that action has taken a toll and it’s time to give the space a face lift and bring it in the 21st century and get it ready to take on another 50 years of action! Will you help Rebuild, Renew and Restore the SJA Parish Center?

The 2019 SJA Dinner Auction: At Bat for SJA!

Some have asked about the funds we raised at the Dinner Auction. Here’s the scoop: The Dinner Auction raised about $100,000. Of that, $41,750 was given to the Fund-A-Need and is represented in the number above.  The balance $59,250 went to paying the regular, operating expenses that come with ‘doing church’.

The Game Plan

One day this week every household in the parish will receive an envelope from the parish office. Inside is a letter detailing the Project, a pledge card, and a return envelope. Also, in the envelope is a sheet summarizing the ways you make your gift pledge. If you have any questions at all, please contact me directly at the parish office or via email: (314) 832-2838; cholway@stjoanofarcstl.com.


Please join me in making a pledge to the 2020 Vision Capital Campaign. Our gift will be a legacy for the both the present and future of St. Joan of Arc. Together, with gifts big and small, we can Rebuild, Renew, Restore the St. Joan of Arc Parish Center.
