A Message from Father Junot:

Dear Friend,

Fr. Junot Nelvy | Pastor
Christ Our Hope Catholic Church

My name is Father Junot Nelvy and I am the Pastor of Christ Our Hope Catholic
Church in Lithonia, GA. Christ Our Hope Catholic Church has been a staple in our
community by providing a place for spiritual nourishment, as well as community
resources since 1984. With a congregation representing over 50 nations, Christ Our
Hope is truly a culturally rich parish.

In preparation for our 40th anniversary we will host the inaugural Legacy of Hope
Gala on September 23, 2023. We are on a mission to build and strengthen our
community by securing the future of our next generation. More specifically, our
church has been working to build an educational and enrichment center for the
entire Lithonia community. With this project, we hope to serve as a catalyst of change
by motivating additional resources and development in the area. However, to reach
our goal and have the Legacy of Hope Gala come to life, we need to call on the help
of supporters like you.
Would you consider sponsoring the gala and help us work towards our mission? Any
level of sponsorship can help bring us so much closer to achieving our goals.
Together, we’re sure to create a legacy for future generations to be proud of.

If you cannot help us financially, please consider becoming a sponsor by providing in-
kind support like [resources, for example: raffle items, services].

If you’d like to support our project and invest Lithonia’s growth, please email me at or call 770-482-5017. If you want to stop by as well, we
would love to talk in person. Visit us at 1786 Wellborn Road Lithonia, GA 30058.
Thanks again for supporting our mission.

Fr. Junot Nelvy
