Our parish building has experienced flooding and damage to the lower level due to excessive water seepage and drainage issues from our parking lot. If not addressed this could cause foundational issues to our building. To prevent future damage, funds from the Love One Another campaign will be used to begin underground excavation and repairs, followed by regrading, and resurfacing of the parking lot to eliminate future issues and create a more welcoming and safe entrance into our parish.
We will supplement St. Clare’s financial health by continuing to add to our reserve. Maintaining this reserve will ensure that funds are available to enhance our parish programs and have funds available when facility needs arise. This will allow our mission and ministry to grow in line with our priorities and our assets.
Fostering Catholic faith is a key element of our mission at St. Clare. Campaign funds will be used to bolster our family faith formation opportunities, offer support for all forms of Catholic education, and fund engagement opportunities like speakers, parish missions, and pilgrimages that will help inspire us to follow Jesus. Establishing these programs will allow us to walk with parishioners as disciples as we evangelize and accompany them on their life-long faith journey.
