St. John’s Church Kicks-off Capital Campaign


For Immediate Release
Apr 25, 2011

Cold Spring Harbor, NY – St. John’s Church of Cold Spring Harbor launched its 2011 Capital Campaign with a boxed lunch following Palm Sunday services at Bleecker Hall.

Restore. Renew. Rejoice! is the theme of the Capital Campaign, which held a Kick-off Celebration after the 10 o’clock service on Palm Sunday. Spring had sprung in Bleecker Hall, where over 200 enthusiastic adults and children were treated to a tasty box lunch and a festive cake. Entertainment included crayons for the children to color a sketch of the Church steeple, and the song “To Share” performed by the Children’s Choir.

David Ware and Hugh Jones, Chair of the Building Design Committee, described to the attentive audience the improvements to the treasured buildings which parishioners over the past 3 years have said are necessary to support St. John’s mission.

Ellie Perkins, Jr. Warden, announced that a new meeting room on the first floor of the Parish House will be dedicated to Emily and Carleton Lee, Rector at St. John’s for 30 years. It will be named the Lee Room.


Campaign Co-Chair Bill Parsons explained how each member of the congregation will have the opportunity to discuss the project one-on-one with another member of the congregation. He emphasized, “That making the Capital Campaign successful will require everyone to contribute their time, talent and treasure.”

The goal of the Capital Campaign is to raise $4,600,000 over the next 6-8 weeks. The Campaign is off to a good start; over $2,800,000 has already been raised.
