We have been blessed with a beautiful church building and grounds which have allowed our parish family to celebrate the Eucharist and continue God’s work in Racine. To be good stewards of our worship space, there are several key projects to address. These projects include the purchase of a new boiler and HVAC controller. Our boiler is rapidly approaching the end of its useful life. The carpet in our worship space is original to the parish and should be replaced within just a few years. Our stained-glass windows are beautiful but require ongoing maintenance to insure their longevity. Both the large and small parking lots need repairs over and above normal periodic sealcoating. All these investments will create a more welcoming, comfortable, and safe environment for our parish.
As our parish structures continue to age repairs will be necessary.Establishment of a fund solely dedicated to our facility maintenance and repairs will ensure that structural emergencies will be funded lessening the need for ongoing pulpit requests for funds to maintain and preserve our church and school buildings.
To remain a bright, vibrant, and growing parish, we need additional funding that goes beyond our operating expenses to financially support our ministries. This portion of the funds will be reserved for supporting Innovative Faith Formation programs, outreach for new members and programs designed for parents and families.
