Matching Funds in the
Month of June

We are excited to announce that, throughout the month of June,

all increases of current pledges, new pledges, and all donations can be doubled

to help raise $200,000 for the Unify, Beautify, Glorify Campaign!

In honor of the Immaculate Heart of Mary feast day on

June 25th, the Knights of Columbus Council #6984 and an anonymous donor have each generously pledged $50,000 for a total of $100,000 in dollar-for-dollar matching funds.  Therefore, an increase of your current pledge, new pledges, and all donations throughout the month of June can be doubled to help raise $200,000 for the Unify, Beautify, Glorify campaign!

Thank you to the Knights of Columbus, as well as the anonymous donor, for this gift, and for providing us with this

great opportunity. Your generosity is helping us to reach the halfway mark of our campaign, which will allow us to take some major steps in officially beginning these monumental projects for our church.  Thank you!

Clarifications on the Match

It may be helpful to clarify what it means when we state that matching funds will be applied to “an increase in your current pledge, new pledges, and all donations.”  In essence, current pledges, or payments on current pledges, will unfortunately not qualify for matching funds.  Instead, it is only new income that will be counted. 

Therefore, for those who have already made a pledge, if you would like to increase that pledge, even if this is by a

minimal amount, such an increase will be doubled.  Extra donations that you would like to make, that are not counted as part of paying off your pledge, would also be a part of the matching funds.  Please indicate in the memo “extra donation” so we don’t miss counting it in the total match.

In addition, anyone who has not yet turned in a pledge card – your pledges throughout the month of June will also be doubled.  Again, even a minimal amount will make a major difference!  Finally, every extra donation aside from any pledges, will be doubled.  Every donation, great or small, will have a positive impact!

How to Participate

If you have already made a pledge and would like to increase your pledge, simply call the parish office at

(785) 625-7339.  We are happy to assist you.

Prayer Card Display

If you have not yet made a pledge, pledge cards are available on top on the Prayer Card Display in the gathering area of the church.  Please feel free to take a pledge card.  You may fill it out and return it by placing it in the collection basket, or by mailing it or dropping it off by the parish office.  In addition, if you prefer, you may also contact the parish office to make a pledge.

Extra donations can be made by utilizing the green envelopes in parishioners’ envelope packages.  Also, there are other envelopes that can be used on top of the Prayer Card Display in the gathering area of the church.  Simply place your donation in one of the envelopes, and either place the envelope in the collection basket, mail it, or drop it off by the parish office.  We just ask, for those who have already made a pledge, if you would like to make an extra donation aside from your pledge payment, please mark on your check, or indicate in any other way, that your donation is part of the “extra donation” for the month of June.

Final “Thank You”
Finally, we would like to thank once again the Knights of Columbus and the anonymous donor.  Thank you to all who have turned in a pledge card.  Thank you all who have made donations.  And thank you all for your prayers!  May God bless you all for your kindness and generosity!  Let us also thank God for the many gifts and blessings He has given to our parish!
