The Capital Campaign for
St. John the Evangelist Church
The McElroy Effect:
Restore, Rebuild, Renew
St. John the Evangelist and the Archdiocese of Baltimore have been blessed with the leadership, dedication, and sacrifice of its parishioners. Beginning in January 2018, our community will begin a new initiative, a capital campaign, which will ensure a sound foundation for the future of St. John and provide lasting service to the Archdiocese of Baltimore and the community we serve. St. John’s campaign is called THE McELROY EFFECT, Restore, Rebuild, Renew. This campaign will assist our parish with the needed funds to restore our historic 1854 Bell Tower and additional work to the exterior of the Church. In addition, this program will assist our Archdiocese by: Raising critically-needed funds to address necessary facility upgrades, as well as academic & program enhancements at our schools; establishing an endowment for tuition assistance for Catholic school students in the city and counties; supporting the vital role of Catholic Charities; strengthening Vocations and providing for the long-term care of our retired priests; providing funds for renovations to The Baltimore Basilica and Cathedral of Mary our Queen; and enhancing our evangelization efforts, including parish religious education programs.
This campaign that will take place in several phases over the next 10-15 years.
