i Give Catholic
We’re excited to announce that we are participating in #iGiveCatholic on #GivingTuesday, November 28, 2023. This is a nationally recognized, special day set aside to honor the beauty of our Catholic faith. It offers all of us the opportunity to support the many wonderful Catholic organizations that serve, such as Sts. Peter and Paul of Soulard. Join us to give thanks and give back! It is only with the prayers and generous assistance of our supporters that we are able to accomplish our important work and make a difference in the lives that we are so blessed to impact.
This year, we are seeking to raise $74,000 to help fund replacement AC units for the Franklin of Soulard. The A/C units for the Franklin of Soulard (parish hall banquet room) were installed in 1986. At the beginning of this year, when doing seasonal prep work on the units, we found a bullet lodged in one of the units. Probably from a New Year’s celebration! When the units were inspected, it was determined that they were about shot—so to speak—and needed to be replaced. There are two units. The cost of each unit is $37,000.00. These are 20-ton units. The banquet room provides 20% of our parish income. In order to continue the mission to the poor, we need to keep the banquet hall operating. Any gift that you are able to make to assist us in this endeavor will be welcomed and greatly appreciated.
All gifts made to Sts. Peter and Paul of Soulard on November 28th or during the Advanced Giving Day phase running from November 13th – November 27th either online or offline (through a gift of cash or check directly to our organization), will increase our ability to make a difference. Please help us reach our fundraising goal during #iGiveCatholic!
