THE CORNERSTONE PRAYER

Heavenly Father,
we thank you for
the abundant love
and grace you bestow
on our community.
We offer all that we are
and all that we do for
your great glory and honor.
Fill us with your
goodness and generosity
as we engage in this effort
to address the needs of
our parish. Fortify this visible
cornerstone of our faith
so that our legacy
and the commitment
of many generations
of believers can become
the firm foundation
for our future at
Our Lady of Good Counsel
Catholic Community.
Amen.

A Call to Act

Please consider how you have benefited from OLGC’s presence in your life and what you can offer so that we may build upon the tremendous good the Lord has already done and continues to do in our parish. OLGC has provided consolation in times of suffering, encouragement in times of trial, connection in times of loneliness, camaraderie in times of celebration, and strength in times of adversity for generations of faithful families. If your children have benefitted from our school, if you have been married here, baptized your children here, received sacraments here, celebrated the life of a departed loved one, or simply remember a word or homily that touched you, please give what you can. Together, let us offer thanks and gratitude for what the Lord has done in our lives through and because of OLGC, and as a community, let us embrace the future towards which the Lord is calling us.

 

Together in Gratitude

OLGC is inviting parishioners, school families, and friends of the parish community to prayerfully consider making a sacrificial and meaningful gift to The Cornerstone Project, one that is above and beyond your annual offertory support. To achieve our campaign goal of $10 million, our success is dependent on the number of parishioners who commit to investing in the future of our spiritual
home. Together, we can look forward in hope and reach our goal.
