Message from Cardinal Rigali

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Cardinal Justin Rigali - Archbishop of Philadelphia

I am overjoyed to announce that Heritage of Faith ~ Vision of Hope has exceeded its original goal of $200 million. Since the beginning of this extraordinary endeavor in September 2008, more than 45,000 families have made a pledge to this historic effort.

I am thankful to those who have contributed to the success of Heritage of Faith ~ Vision of Hope. Achieving this remarkable milestone was made possible by the extraordinary generosity and prayers of the Catholic community and the leadership and unwavering support of pastors and parishioners.

In the final months of this momentous program, it is my hope that every Catholic in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will prayerfully consider a sacrificial pledge to Heritage of Faith ~ Vision of Hope. Our pastoral, educational and charitable needs are vast and your good faith intentions will positively impact future generations of Catholics.

On behalf of the people, parishes and programs that will benefit from your generosity and prayers, I extend my deepest gratitude.

Sincerely in Christ,

Archbishop of Philadelphia
