Pandemic cannot stop parish capital campaign

FORT PIERCE - St. Anastasia Church and School in Fort Pierce has an enduring history in St. Lucie County. For 110 years, the parish has been providing spiritual leadership, while the school has educated children for a century. However, the effects of aged construction from the 1960s warranted renovations, which are in the works on the parish’s overall campus.

Beginning with its kickoff in August of 2019, a three-year, $2.5 million Joint Capital Campaign has reached a goal of raising more than 70% of the goal, successfully raising $1.8 million. The campaign is still going strong, even in the midst of a worldwide pandemic.
