Dear Friends and Family,
Greetings from Blessed Sacrament Church,
We have been serving a community of multi-cultural residents in the Palm River/Clair Mel area in Tampa Florida for the past 59 years. Our various religious services and outreach program have immensely impacted the lives of the people we serve. While we are proud of our accomplishments, we have been unable to operate and meet the demands of our community growth due to the lack of funds and building facilities.
In order to meet these needs, we deemed it necessary to expand to new facilities with a new parish center to serve our community and youth with a faith-centered environment. Once completed, the center will provide classrooms for Religious education, a large dining area, conferences, retreats and social events with the support of a full-service kitchen and administrative offices. It will also provide a non-denominational center that would accommodate the diverse social-cultural interests of the community and assist in providing various humanitarian services to the Greater Palm River neighborhood.
Along with this vision, we are faced with a construction budget of $1,177,662.00. We have so far generated pledges for $ 457,545.00 from our parishioners and fund-raising events. Most of our community members come from low income families living under the bread line and it will be very difficult to achieve our goal. Your donation today can help make a big difference in their lives.
This goal does not include the cost for equipping the center with furniture such as tables/chairs for the dining area, kitchen appliances nor office furniture.
We are appealing to your generous hearts for a donation to make this vision a reality. Your financial donation no matter how small or large will help us achieve the funding needed to complete this construction project. We hope you will consider becoming a donor to our fund-raising efforts as whatever you sacrifice in God’s name will be returned to you in ten-fold. Also, please note that we are a registered 501©(3)nonprofit, and any contribution you make will be tax-deductible.
On behalf of the Church officers, volunteers and parishioners of Blessed Sacrament Church, I would like to thank you in advance for your kind generosity. If you are interested in receiving an information packet feel free to contact our parish .
Respectfully yours in Christ,
Rev. Kazimierz Domek, Pastor/Administrator
