Our first priority in this campaign is to provide funds our parish can distribute to local and international organizations serving the poor and marginalized.
To enhance our celebration of the Eucharist, we will renovate the sanctuary area of the church, including expanding its size and adding a permanent altar, ambo, and tabernacle. With the renovation, we will also find ways to enhance the church’s current sound system and install a Hearing Loop. We will also replace the worn-out carpeting in the Gathering Space and the Community room and upgrade the audio/visual equipment. Lastly, funds will go towards resources for future Christian Formation program needs for students from 5K through Confirmation.
Our 73 year old campus has a number of much needed repairs. Our school kitchen’s dishwasher is over 50 years old, and is used by the school lunch program and other parish events. Funds raised will go towards the purchase of a more energy-efficient model. The school’s flooring and terazzo tiling needs to be restored to its original state, improving the safety and appearance of the facility. The main church parking lot will be resealed, while the remaining north lot will be completely replaced.
We know that there will be ongoing needs for both the facilities and equipment. This effort intends to increase that fund so that we are financially ready to address any major mechanical failures or facility repairs that arise.
