GIFT Campaign Report
(1 January 2019 – 31 March 2019)
The GIFT (Giving in Faith and Thankfulness) campaign was launched in Advent 2016 to support the archdiocese’s vision of a more vibrant, evangelistic and missionary Church. Every Catholic is challenged to pledge a monthly contribution for the needs of the archdiocese. This report updates on the campaign’s progress.
CONTRIBUTIONS TO DATE
From January to March 2019, a total of $2.7 million was collected. Since its launch in November 2016, GIFT has raised $40.4 million.
In the last few months the construction of two major buildings – the St Francis Xavier (SFX) Seminary Building and the Bethany East home for retired priests – was completed. The focus on fundraising will continue for the operating needs and capital needs of the Church in Singapore.
Thank you for your generosity thus far and playing a part in helping to resource the needs of the Church.
The future of the Church does not rest solely on the shoulders of the clergy, but with the laity generously using their God-given gifts too. We look forward to your continued support.
