Spread the love

A new chapel inside the school building will be the next capital campaign project, with construction expected to begin in summer 2021. The new weight room opened in 2020.

Dear Friends of Scecina,

I am so excited to share an Our Faith, Our Journey, Our Time capital campaign update with you! Please read on.

First, I want to say thank you.

Thank you to the 750 donors who made this campaign possible through generous and sacrificial pledges. Your gifts truly helped Scecina reach an amazing feat. Thank you to the 100+ volunteers who spent their evenings and weekends with Scecina, helping us reach more people in our Scecina Community. And thank you to all who prayed for the success of this campaign. It is because of YOU that this moment has come.

I am excited to share great news today about the capital campaign. Thanks to your generosity and God’s grace, Scecina has reached $6,839,801 in pledges!

I wish we could celebrate this incredible milestone together in person. Please know that we will try to do something in person later.

We already have completed some campaign priorities. The weight room, constructed recently for student safety, is used every day. We also have invested over $400,000 in the two campaign endowments – the Academic Excellence Fund and the Facilities Endowment Fund.

What is next? Building the chapel in the school building is the construction priority for 2021. Our design, engineering, and estimating teams are meeting early this year to map out the schedule for building the new main entrance and the athletic and activity fields.

As 2021 progresses, we will share updates with you about the projects. We are still in conversation with a small group of donors, so the pledge total could go even higher. Reaching these milestones is not an end but a new beginning!

Again, thank you so very much for your belief in the importance of Catholic education at Scecina, where we live in the inspiring footsteps of those who came before us, including Father Thomas Scecina.

May God bless you,

Joe Therber
