Fruitful Harvest Campaign

Fruitful Harvest Campaign - Lafayette Diocese Fundraiser

What a blessing it is to the parishes as it allows 100% of the weekly collections to remain in the parish, yes, our diocese is one, if not the only diocese in the country without a “tax” on offertory collections.  There are also overage funds that are returned to the parish. Last month, we received a check for just over $71,000.00.  This money was put into our charity account and will be given to different charities as needs arise.

As I am sure you are aware, Fruitful Harvest  supports all the diocesan offices such as Catechesis, Schools, Newman Apostolate Ministry, the Marriage Tribunal, Third Option Marriage Ministry, Communications (including the Catholic Moment), Family Life, Hispanic Ministries, Worship and the RCIA, the Vocations Office and the Bishop’s Office. 

  1. Fruitful Harvest is a biannual campaign that raises our share of funds for the diocese.
  2. Holy Spirit’s goal for the 2018 campaign is $689,000.  Our goal is arrived at based on parish population and offertory income.
  3. As soon as we reach our goal in paid pledges, a 10% rebate is paid.  An additional 50% rebate is received for all paid pledges exceeding our goals.  Holy Spirit uses these rebates to fund our outreach programs for the poor.
  4. Electronic gifts are accepted by going to www.dol-in.org

In light of this, I want to encourage all parishioners to consider making a pledge to this important campaign and help us to reach our goal and support the good work being done in our diocese

Update: We have only received 377 pledge cards back out of  approximately 2,500 Holy Spirit families. If you have not returned your card, please do so as soon as possible. Those who did not receive a pledge card in the mail can find blank pledge cards in the pews.

Thank you very much for your generous support of Holy Spirit!
