We will upgrade our security system to cover all areas in the school, the church, and our grounds as a part of our updated Emergency Operation Plan. We will install railings leading down to the worship space and at the entrance to our Parish. Our plan also includes upgrading our interior and exterior doors, purchasing AED devices, and providing our staff with CPR/AED and ALICE training. These measures will allow our parishioners, priests, staff, and visitors to feel safe and comfortable in our place of worship.
Blessed Sacrament Parish was built in 1927 and requires us to modernize our electrical, heating, and cooling systems. Our systems are not optimized to modern standards, leading to increasing annual costs on the Parish. An upgrade now will reduce the risk of unexpected failures, increase energy efficiency, offset growing energy costs, and save the Parish on maintenance and upkeep costs in the short-and-long-term.
We will enhance Blessed Sacrament’s financial health by establishing a reserve to ensure that we have sufficient funds to continue to bring our Parish programs and facility needs up to date when these needs arise. This will allow our mission and ministry to continue to grow in line with our priorities and our assets.
