Parish Needs


Improving Traffic Flow and Signage

Currently, the traffic pattern in and out of the chapel parking lot is dangerous for entry and exit. By adding another automatic gate and new exit pattern for the chapel, and paving a road to this new exit, it will be much easier and safer for our families to enter and exit the property. We will also renew the signage for the church and add another couple of signs to make it easier for people to find the chapel from the freeway.

Improve Restroom Facilities and Outdoor Spaces

The restroom facilities and outdoor gathering spaces at Santa Clara Chapel are inadequate. We will overhaul the restrooms and outdoor areas for our chapelgoers so that these spaces can provide better gathering spaces for groups and events.

New Flooring for the Church

The carpet at the chapel is worn and in need of replacement. We will work with chapel leadership to replace the carpet or provide other suitable tile or wood flooring.

Bell Tower Improvements

The tower, original mounting, and swinging mechanism of the first bell of Oxnard, the Santa Clara Chapel bell called “CLARA” (cast in 1887), needs a complete overhaul to chime and toll once again for parish celebrations and memorials. A portion of our Called to Renew funds will be used to restore the bell tower to working condition.

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.
