To continue the dynamic liturgies that welcome and speak to people today through creative prayer, meaningful ritual, stirring homilies, and excellent music both in person and virtually, we will need to update the A/V technology in the worship area. This includes new projectors used during Mass to operate in conjunction with our newly installed equipment for live streaming. We will also update our sound board to enhance the quality of sound for all those participating in the liturgy. Additionally, we will use funds to renovate our parish lobby with a service area, adding amenities such as a drinking fountain with a water bottle filler, a coffee bar, and more inviting seating and decor. Finally, we plan to donate 10% or up to $15,000 of funds raised to our twinning partner, Outreach to Haiti.
We are aware that there are always projects needed to maintain the complex in an eco-friendly and energy efficient manner while using the funds of parishioners wisely. We plan to use a portion of funds raised to update sections of the parking lot that need to be repaved and repainted, as well as add additional green spaces to unused areas. We also plan to replace the windows on the west side of the complex with energy efficient windows and updated treatments to reduce future operational costs for the parish.
