Upgrades will address our short-and long-term anticipated needs. The focus will include the boiler & HVAC systems, south parking lot replacement, implementation of Pope Francis’s Laudato Si’ to make our facilities more energy efficient, replacements of old windows and doors where needed, upgrades to the south entrance which include noise abatement doors, and the installation of a new divider in Daniels Hall.
Renovations will include modernizing the parish’s audio and visual technology, installing a stone wall behind the altar and ambo, opening the east wall to allow natural light, and renovating the flooring. All upgrades are oriented towards enhancing parishioners’ overall worship experience.
We will enhance Good Shepherd’s financial health with supplemental payments towards the approved line of credit established for the roof and west parking lot replacement.
We will update the overall information technology infrastructure with specific attention to offices and staff servers and computers. Additionally, we will provide training for staff regarding effective use of video, audio, digital, and social media.
To recognize, honor, and supplement our outreach tradition, Good Shepherd will bolster support for local, national, and international ministries focused on the poor and marginalized. Examples include, but are not limited to: Capuchin Community Services, Anti Human Sex Trafficking, Ellacuria Support, and area food pantry and homeless shelters. This will be a tithe of 5% of Good Shepherd’s share of the total raised.
