St John the Evangelist Defiance, Ohio
In preparation of St John’s 125th anniversary, the parish launched their Reflections on Our Past, Foundation for Our Future campaign. Member’s showed their generosity by gifting over 3.34 times their annual offertory to the campaign in support of their plans. The funds raised will be used to restore their beautiful stained-glass windows in the sanctuary, completely renovate their fellowship hall and basement kitchen and update their restrooms. And to address maintenance and repairs of their front steps and replace their parking lot.
“From our first meeting until now, the whole Walsh service was direct and to the point. By aiming high and being thankful for whatever donation we received, our St. John’s Parish was able to achieve its fundraising goal and more. Our director kept us focused on what we needed to do as a faith-filled parish community.”
– David Jiminez, Prayer Committee Chair
