To preserve the adobe brick structure, the crumbling exterior stucco will be replaced using “old world” methods proven stronger and more enduring than modern materials.

Church Lighting

The current electrical infrastructure is antiquated and poses a fire hazard. New wiring will allow for energy- efficient LED lighting and better highlighting of church elements.

O’Brien Hall Exterior Tiles & Waterproofing

The compromised second floor veranda tiles, stair tiles and exterior sealant are causing the steel infrastructure to rust. Preserving our campus’ newest building will be a high priority.

Faith Formation & Facilities

The remaining funds will complement the archdiocesan goal of ministering to and supporting our youth and young adults, as well as provide for necessary facility repairs and upgrades.
