Our Parish Receives


To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.

Parish Needs

Air Conditioning & Fans

In the summer months, the temperature in the Church can surge to unbearable heat. Currently, we have three or four ineffective air conditioning systems that are insufficient to cool our Church, each of which needs to be turned on at least one hour before service to impact the temperature. As most people know, once our Church gets hot, our systems are unable to cool it down. With your support of Called to Renew, we will install a new HVAC system and add fans to circulate the air to help moderate the temperature to make our worship experience more comfortable.

Old Rear Restrooms

The old restrooms between Room E and the Michael Hunt room are past their useful life expectancy. They are old, unattractive, and riddled with problems, such as toilets and urinals often backing up or water running without control. When operable, these restrooms are utilized by our parish groups and ministries and attendees of large events hosted on the patio. We will gut the old restrooms, repair damaged plumbing, and replace the fixtures and furniture.

Stained Glass Windows

The stained-glass windows in the Church honor the founding families who helped build our parish and illuminate our worship space by allowing the beauty of sunlight to come inside. The windows have aged and do not close properly, attributing to energy loss when the HVAC system is turned on. We will restore the beauty and luster of our Church by repairing the stained-glass windows.

Sound System

During Mass, we celebrate the Liturgy of the Word and the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Our old sound system makes it difficult to hear parts of the Mass, and the music is distorted due to the inferior quality of our sound system. At other times, we participate in the Mass while listening to some radio station in the background. To improve the sound quality in our Church, we will install a new sound system.

A Bold Plan of Renewal

We — the Catholic faithful — are the agents of renewal for Church and society. I am grateful for this opportunity to walk alongside clergy and parishioners in strengthening our parishes and ministries, the heart of our Archdiocese.
