Faithful Stewards . . . Building Our Future
The New Capital Campaign started on October 1, 2019.
Our goal for the Campaign is to raise $2 million dollars over 4 years.
Please support the campus improvements planned for our Parish using the
yellow envelopes included in your packets or found in the pews.
Our Parish leadership has been working together on a set of improvements that are essential for the Holy Name of Jesus campus. The proposed new projects would:
- Create a separate residence for the priests
- Establish adequate work areas for the business office
- Provide private offices for the priests
- Bring our new church up to its original plan
- Modernize the social hall
- Improve handicap accessibility
Tips On Giving
Seniors, are you taking the “standard deduction” on your federal tax return and wishing you could “write off” your charitable contributions? Here is a simple way to accomplish that goal and help our parish by donating to the Holy Name of Jesus Capital Campaign. After reaching the age of 70 ½, you must withdraw annually a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from your traditional IRA. This withdrawal is reportable income on your federal tax return. An alternative would be to consider making a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your IRA directly to Holy Name of Jesus. The QCD donation to our church reduces, dollar for dollar, the reportable taxable withdrawal from your IRA. Taking this approach, you are able to receive a tax benefit for your charitable donation and provide financial support to our parish. For those of you who are willing and able to contribute more than your RMD, your generosity is greatly appreciated. As always, it is recommended that you consult with your tax professional about this method of tax efficient giving. The parish office remains available to answer any questions you may have regarding QCDs.
