Project Costs

  • Newman Center $2,500,000
  • Holy Family $800,000
  • St. Ann-Penobscot Nation $100,000
  • St. Ann-Bradley $100,000
  • TOTAL $3,500,000

Raising $3,500,000 will allow our parish to address some of its most immediate, critical needs. Guided by Canon and civil laws, the gifts solicited and received are restricted to parish use for the Rebuild His Church campaign’s stated purposes. We prayerfully ask every member of the parish, those who were directly or indirectly touched by the Newman Center, and others of the faithful whose interests include helping students keep the faith in college, to join in this historic effort to Rebuild His Church.

Nearly 80% of those raised Catholic but are now unaffiliated with any religion leave the faith by age 23 (Faith in Flux: Changes in the Religious Affiliation in the U.S. Pew, 2009). Hence, the continued impact of the Newman Center has never been more critical. An investment in the Newman Center at the University of Maine is an investment in the lives of countless young people and future generations of the faithful.

Your generosity will make a difference! We are delighted to discuss all the giving options with you and allow you to determine which provides you the best method to demonstrate your commitment to our Church and its mission in the region. We thank you for your prayer, consideration, and generosity as we Rebuild His Church.
