IGNITE CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

Future Disaster fund
Here at the Church of the Annunciation, we began planning the IGNITE campaign for the summer of 2020,
but due to the pandemic, we were unable to launch the campaign. We are now ready to kickstart our
IGNITE campaign during this 2021 Lenten season and plan to do our part to support the Archdiocese and
our beautiful parish!
WHAT IS BEING ASKED OF OUR PARISH?
Every parish in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston is asked to participate in the IGNITE: Our Faith, Our Mission campaign. The active phases of the campaign will run through December 2021. Each parish will conduct its campaign in one of four blocks within that time-frame. Parishes conducting a Good Faith Effort agree to participate in the campaign as designed by our counsel, Guidance In Giving, Inc., in order to reach their established financial goal. Please visit the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston website for more information and updates about this campaign.
