Ways and Means Committee

Mission: To oversee fundraising activities of the church.  These fundraisers supplement our mortgage and helps the church to meet our annual budget as well as promote and build our sense of community.

The work of the committee is fulfilled through the following means:


·       Identifying and supporting creative fundraising activities that seek to build our sense of community as much as they provide funds;

·       To involve as much of our Church community in our fundraising activities as possible by making them affordable and interesting to our members while still accomplishing the goal of raising funds; and

·       Provide leadership and support of major fundraising activities.


We are looking for creative thinkers, with fresh ideas about how to accomplish our twin goals of promoting fellowship and community, while raising the necessary funds to assist in paying off our mortgage. While we brainstorm for ideas, we typically obtain help from other committees and groups to bring our plans and projects to life. We meet the second Tuesday of each month, with the exception of the summer, when we have no meetings. In the past, we have held Raffles and a Church brunch.


If you are looking for community involvement and a way to support your

Church, please give the Ways and Means Committee some serious thought. If you have any questions or would like to become a member, you can contact St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Parish for further information. We hope you can find a way to use your talents and time to support our mission.
