We have been blessed with wonderful buildings where we can come together as a parish family to celebrate the Eucharist, pray and continue God’s work in and around Fontana. In order to continue to be good stewards of our house of worship, we will use the money raised from the campaign to invest in a number of capital improvements to our campus. This includes projects to our parish building including a new roof, reinforcing the windows, repairing flooring, updating ventilation, as well as installing new A/V equipment to be used during Mass. Additionally, we will repave our parking lot and install a new parish sign to increase the splendor of the church and campus as a whole.
Our St. Vincent dePaul Society is part of an international Catholic lay organization that offers person-to-person service to the needy and suffering in our area. Funds raised will be used to offer annual support to the society and their work in the community. Additionally, funds raised will be offered to our parish’s Human Concerns Committee which discerns needs of persons in the parish and the wider community and identifies resources to meet those needs enlisting the active cooperation of parish members.
Evangelization, education and outreach are areas of growth for our parish. Funds raised will go towards investing in workshops and speakers for all parishioners and continued education for our parish staff. We will also expand our outreach to the residents of Fontana, Walworth, and Williams Bay with regular mailings to maintain growth and increase evangelization in our community.
