Parish Needs

Church Interior Renovations

According to St. Augustine, when a church’s beauty is allowed to wither, the liturgy experience suffers. Restoring the reredos, repainting the interior, refurbishing the pews, and cleaning the decor will restore the beauty of our worship space.

Church Exterior Painting

It has been many years since the exterior of the church was painted. Repainting the church will protect it for years to come so future generations may rejoice in its spectacular beauty.

Parish Hall Remodeling

Many parishioners would like to grow the social aspect of our parish and get to know one another better. Sprucing up the parish hall by painting the interior, re-staining the floor, adding a room divider, remodeling the kitchen, and buying new chairs will make the space more inviting for meetings and events.

Parish School Projects

The school is one of parish’s most important ministries. Replacing the deteriorating windows with double-pane windows will help reduce road noise and keep classrooms cooler. We will also replace the classroom flooring, which is falling apart and becoming a trip hazard.

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.
Archbishop José H. Gomez
