Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine

Devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe is an integral part of our faith experience. A new resplendent shrine to Our Lady and St. Juan Diego will both attract and inspire.

Church Interior Renovations

New flooring, painting, lighting and minor restructuring of the layout will restore the beauty and luster of our church’s interior.

Parking Lot Resurfacing

A smooth and unblemished parking lot will create a positive first impression.

Tabernacle

Our parish tabernacle requires a more prominent location conducive to reverence, Holy Communion and prayerful adoration. Its new space in the church will also be larger to better accommodate personal and group devotion.

Gathering Space

We will fashion a welcoming gathering space between the church and the parking lot to accommodate our Sunday hospitality.

Pastoral Center Restrooms

Renovating the women’s restroom in the pastoral center will ensure convenience, comfort and accessibility for our community.

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.
