The Xavier Shelter Naming Project
As announced in last week’s bulletin, we want and intend to name the Xavier Shelter for Men in honor of former pastor,
Fr. Ned Coughlin, SJ
. To make this possible and provide much needed resources for the shelter, the Parish and Xavier Mission are teaming up to hold a community-wide drawing!
Throughout the month of June, tickets will be available for purchase in the church after all weekend Masses, at the 15
Street reception desk, and through Faith Direct. The cost is
per ticket and we hope to sell 1,000 tickets (or more). Half of the proceeds will benefit the shelter and the parish while the other half will be awarded as cash prizes according to the following scale:
GRAND PRIZE: $5,000 (or 25% of the drawing’s gross income, whichever is higher)
2nd PRIZE: $1,750 (or 8.75% of the drawing’s gross income, whichever is higher). Two prizes will be awarded at this level.
3rd PRIZE: $500 (or 2.5% of the drawing’s gross income, whichever is higher). Three prizes will be awarded at this level.
