Living Our Mission

Capital Campaign

Thank you for your interest and support of Living Our Mission; our mission, our legacy, our future. Because of the extraordinary generosity of the Saint Bede Catholic Church parishioners and friends, Bishop DiLorenzo dedicated our Ministry/Administration building on March 26 with many former pastors in attendance. Fourteen rooms are named in honor of the pastors who served our faith community since inception, the remaining rooms are named for saints.  We finally have adequate space accomodate religious education for all ages, and the 60 plus ministries and parish activities that help lead people to a deeper relationship with Christ.

The estimated cost of the building and furnishings $10.5 million; the building alone $7.5 million. In this combined capital campaign with the Diocese of Richmond, we have received gifts and pledges totaling $8,469,493. Additional donations to Living Our Mission campaign will reduce our indebtedness for the church and our new facility which stands at $4,241,712. Cash received for Diocese and Saint Bede to date totals $5,801,519. 


There is still time for you to join us in this historic time for our parish. Room namings are offered for gifts in excess of $25,000. There are additional Commemorative Gift Opportunities available starting at $100.  Please contact Director of Development, Harold D. "Sam" Samorian Jr., to learn more.
