Campaign to Zero

Dear Parishioners and Friends of Saint Nicholas Cathedral,
Greetings in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

We are very happy to announce that we have now finalized our plans and are kicking off our capital campaign to
pay off the Restoration Mortgage. Retiring our mortgage will not only ensure the financial stability of
St. Nicholas for the foreseeable future but will free up money to make needed repairs and provide funds for our
ongoing ministries. As of October, 2017, our mortgage principal was $453,467.

The campaign’s goal is to pay off our mortgage over the next 18 months, by April 15, 2019. The pledge period
will extend from now until the end of January, 2018. The plan is for all pledges to be completed by April 15,
2019, the date the mortgage will be retired. During the campaign period, all contributions will be immediately
paid toward the mortgage principal.

We will use engraved pavers to acknowledge our donors and their loved ones, and to also beautify the parklet
side of our property. The cross over The Royal Doors of Saint Nicholas is the inspiration for the paver design.
Enclosed are the following items explaining the pledge program, the paver design, and the forms for you to
identify the names you want on your paver:

  • The paver design and a color coded legend to select a paver by pledge level.
  • Frequently Asked Questions on the capital campaign and pavers.
  • Pledge form along with engraving information form for the names to be submitted for the pavers.

We sincerely request your support for this exciting and important project. It is a project, which will not only pay
off the mortgage, but will also pay tribute to loved ones both living as well as to those who have passed. If you
have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the committee.
