St. Joseph Parish
Belmont, New Hampshire
February 19, 1949 -- February 19, 2019
Saint Joseph, husband of Mary, help us to be patient, gentle and strong. You who walked in silence, an ordinary man, help us to live each day FOR THE GLORY OF GOD. Protector of the Child Jesus, help our youth to grow in faith, understanding, and love. Craftsman and woodworker, help us to seek and to accept God's plan for us as we continue to build a parish community that is prayerful and Spirit-filled.
August 17 Update
Thanks to your generosity, the Capital Campaign committee is pleased to report that a total of $212,703 has been collected. We are in the third year of the campaign, and due to the generosity of you and fellow parishioners we have been able to complete the following projects:
Replace Roof--$ 32,966;
Hall door replacement--$859;
Hall lighting--$7,420; Supplies--$494;
*(Front entry expense has exceeded the original budgeted amount of $20,000. Once work commenced it was discovered the roots from all the evergreen ground cover destabilized the retaining walls leading to extensive landscaping expenses. Also, the handrails could not be refurbished. When completed the cost will exceed $100,000)
If you are a new parishioner, or was not able to pledge in the past please take time to pray on how you may be able to make a gift. It is through the efforts of each of us that we will be able to complete the necessary repairs to keep our parish facility vibrant.
Our church community is truly blessed, and we hope through your continued generosity many more projects will be completed. If you would like to pledge or need to change your pledge please contact the rectory.
E-Give is available for Capital Campaign
If you have not had an opportunity to pledge and would like to, please contact the parish office and a pledge card will be sent to you. Thank you for your support!!! Envelopes have been placed in the pews for those who are making an ongoing commitment by check or cash.
Thanks to all who donated to our Capital Campaign.
