Building a church is an incredible undertaking but when we walk through the doors for the first time, the sense of accomplishment will be overwhelming. For us, it will truly mean coming home, but we cannot do it without the help of all our parishioners!
Thanks to the outpouring of generosity from our parishioners and friends during our Fall 2014 To Build a Church, a Church Alive! campaign, our existing debts were paid, our contribution to the Diocesan The Church Alive campaign fulfilled, and $8.1M of the needed $11M has been pledged for our new church construction! We are asking for your help to raise the additional $2.9M.
If you have already made a one time gift or multi-year pledge, thank you!
To make a one-time gift, make a new pledge, or to increase your existing pledge, simply click on the pledge envelope below for a printable form you can return in the offertory at a weekend Mass or drop the completed form in the mail to Saint Kilian Parish at 7076 Franklin Road, Cranberry Twp., PA 16066.

Final bids on our new construction have been received and we expect the actual costs to approach $10.5M. The usual practice of the Diocese is to add a contingency amount which brings the total to nearly $11M. In order to avoid rising building costs and to meet ever greater parish needs, we hope to break ground and begin construction as soon as early summer, 2015.
For full funding details, please click here to view our April 23, 2015 approved financial construction proposal.
While we have achieved significant pledges, contractors must purchase material and pay workers with cash and not pledges. Therefore, we anticipate the need to borrow funds from the Diocese as construction moves forward (at 4% interest). Thus, we are attempting to raise as much in pledges and cash as possible to reduce the debt we will incur. The more we raise now, the less we need to borrow.
Again, if you have already made a one time gift or multi-year pledge, thank you. If you are in a position to increase your gift or pledge, we would be most grateful. If you have not yet made a gift or pledge, please consider doing so.
Please be a part of this incredible opportunity, every gift matters!
