David & Patti Hogan: Capital Campaign Letter

Dear Fellow Parishioners,

We hope this letter finds all of you and yours well and safe. This is a difficult time.

Once again, our St. Ignatius Loyola Parish, our home, has stepped forward as a source of spiritual comfort and support during this COVID-19 crisis.  Under the leadership of our pastor, priests and staff, the Parish adjusted quickly to offer livestreamed Masses, virtual events, chat lines, social distance socials ad support for small businesses among other services to our community.

For over 150 years, St. Ignatius Loyola Parish has stood like a rock offering comfort and support through many crises including the 1918 Flu epidemic, wars including two World Wars, The Great Depression, 9-11, Financial Crises and now COVID-19.

Today we have the opportunity to be part of this legacy by supporting and enhancing our St. Ignatius Loyola Parish by participating in our Capital Campaign, Your Parish, Your Home. The campaign solicitation was suspended during the height of the COVID-19 crisis in New York City. We are restarting the solicitation to complete the campaign and achieve our goal to make our parish buildings accessible to everyone and improve their safety.

The goal of the campaign is $7.5 million. To date, we have received commitments that total $6.8 million. With these funds, modern fire suppression systems have been installed in Wallace Hall and McKinnon Hall as well as a fire alarm system in the church. A new accessible entrance has been constructed into the Parish House. The Kelly Loggia, at the entrance of Wallace Hall, has been made safer and beautifully updated with backlit stained glass windows.  Most importantly, work is nearing completion on the elevator that will allow barrier-free accessibility into the church and Wallace Hall.

Please consider being a part of this continuing legacy by contributing to our Your Parish, Your Home Capital Campaign.  Help us reach our goal.

Sincerely,

David and Patti Hogan, Co-chairs
