"Forward with Faith" Campaign Announcement
Sep 8, 2021 | by Church of the Incarnation
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As your pastor, I’d like to announce to the parish about an archdiocesan-wide campaign entitled “Forward with Faith” being conducted by The Hartford Bishops’ Foundation. The campaign focuses on strengthening parishes, as well as Archdiocesan, schools, and other Catholic ministries. All parishes benefit from the campaign, and all parishes participate.
Forward with Faith began two years ago, with 84 parishes already having conducted or, are currently in the process of conducting their local parish campaign.
To date over $30 million has been raised in pledges and gifts, with more than $7 million being released throughout our archdiocese. Primarily to parishes.
You will hear more about Forward with Faith over the coming months. We will post information in our bulletin, the website as well as announcements at Mass.
Future mailings will invite you the opportunity to hear more about the campaign and how it will directly help Church of the Incarnation Parish, as well as grow our Catholic community throughout our archdiocese.

What is Forward with Faith?
Forward with Faith (FWF) is a fundraising campaign to build a vibrant community of faith in the parishes, schools, and Catholic organizations. This vision will help to fulfill the mission of our Church in the Archdiocese of Hartford: to be living signs of communion with God and to be his instruments for redemption in the world.
What are the objectives of Forward with Faith?
Forward with Faith seeks to raise funds to support:
- Vibrant Parishes: Half of all funds raised will help the parishes meet their needs;
- Educating to Re-ignite the Faith: by expanding and strengthening learning for students, administrators, teachers, clergy, and the faithful;
- Champions in Service: by helping Catholic Charities with better facilities and new programs; and,
- Innovation and Emerging Opportunities that promote long-lasting change, strengthen our schools and parishes, and meet the evolving needs of the community.
