Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

This year Santa Sophia is hosting our own Giving Tuesday campaign.

Giving Tuesday is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving when charities and non-profits offer their supporters an opportunity to give to a good cause after the prevailing message of “buy, buy, buy” has been thrown at us during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

A BIG need we have on the Santa Sophia campus at the moment is for an upgrade to the parish and academy IT system. The first step toward revitalizing our IT System is the installation of a new phone system. With your generosity, you can help us to accomplish this upgrade and installation!

Once we get the phone system updated, then we can look into upgrading our Wi-Fi system across campus which is currently 4 years overdue for an upgrade.

This upgrade to the parish and academy IT system is a two part process, and the upgrade and installation of a new phone system is the first essential part.

The total cost for the phone system upgrade and installation is a little over $16,000. So, our goal for Giving Tuesday at Santa Sophia is to raise the $16,000 to upgrade our phone system on the whole campus — parish, church, preschool, academy, CMO, all of it!

This upgrade doesn’t involve buying new phones. It’s an upgrade to the inner-workings and infrastructure of the phone system — business licenses, software, set-up, and the like.

Your contributions to our Giving Tuesday campaign will help us to serve you and our visitors for the glory of God and the salvation of souls. When you look at it that way, why wouldn’t you want to participate in our Giving Tuesday campaign?!

To give, please visit our parish online giving platform, login or create a profile, and make a one-time tax deductible donation to our “Giving Tuesday” fund. You can get to our online giving platform by clicking below on the “Donate Here” button. If you prefer to write a check, please make it out to Santa Sophia, but write “Giving Tuesday” in the memo line and bring it by the Parish Office.

Thank you in advance for your generosity and I look forward to reporting back to you how we do with our Giving Tuesday 2022 campaign at Santa Sophia.

In Christ,

Fr. Corey Tufford
