Enhancing Faith Formation Programs

This campaign will allow our parish to provide a holistic approach to faith formation through additional staff members and programs with an enhanced experience of faith formation and opportunities for Christian service for adults, youth and young adults and our families. These programs will also assist in our outreach to new church members and non-practicing Catholics. Programs include the adult faith formation ChristLife series, marriage preparation and “Living Matrimony,” baptismal catechesis and family faith formation.

Improving Church Landscaping and Exterior Lighting

Renovating the exterior landscaping will enhance gathering areas and provide more accessibility to the church and parish offices. Adding decorative and safety lighting will beautify the church and grounds while also increasing safety.

Remodeling the Church Sanctuary

Remodeling the sanctuary to enhance our liturgical experience is a priority since we value the sacramental life of the parish. Upgrades to the nave and sanctuary will include the long-awaited sanctuary crucifix, baptismal font, video monitors and improved audio system. In addition, our renovation will offer safety and accessibility for all ministers.

Addressing Deferred School Maintenance

Our Lady of the Assumption School is an integral part of our parish community. This 60-year-old facility needs a new roof, paint and skylight to meet current standards. Our parish’s commitment to Catholic faith formation benefits all of our children and adults who use these buildings for academic and religious instruction.

Improving Church Lighting

Upgrading our church’s interior lighting will improve our worship experience. More parishioners will be able to read and sing along at Mass and other parish gatherings.

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.
