What an exciting time to be in the Diocese of Colorado Springs! It has been a blessing to serve the college-age population of our Diocese in the newly opened St. John Henry Newman Chapel and Catholic Student Center. Sunday Masses began this past Lent, and we have seen a definite increase in attendance and interest. Thank you for your continued support and prayers!
Catholic Extension has offered a challenge grant to help us finish this project and give a wonderful retirement present to Bishop Sheridan. For every dollar given or pledged to the Building for the Future campaign, they will match all new gifts and pledges on a 1:1 basis up to $50,000. This means any new gift given before November 30, 2021 will be matched dollar for dollar – making your gift worth double!
By the grace of God $6,694,459 has been pledged to the overall goal of $7,500,000. If we meet this overall goal, we will not only fund the complete construction costs of the new facility but also establish an endowment, the Bishop Michael J. Sheridan Fund, to endow this facility for generations to come.
Please join us in this effort to glorify God, honor Bishop Sheridan, and our new Bishop, Bishop James Golka.
For those who have given already, please consider a response to the challenge grant with a new gift for that same honor.
Remember, any new gift or pledge given to the campaign between now and November 30, 2021 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $50,000.
Now is the time to boldly trust in God’s providence.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
