To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.

Parish Needs

Roof

Replacing the roofing system for the contiguous church and hall with a similar, Class-A rated composition roof material will enhance the aesthetic appearance of both buildings.

HVAC and Electrical Upgrade

Replacing the church’s two aging heating and air conditioning systems with a new and reliable HVAC system will provide a more comfortable and hospitable environment with greater cost-efficiency. To support this new system, we will also replace the church’s main electrical panel, which is decades old and incapable of delivering adequate amperage for current technology.

Interior Painting

Painting the interior of the church is long overdue and will preserve the plaster walls.

Exterior Lighting

Installing new exterior down-lighting along the walkways and entrances to the church and parish hall will increase safety during the darker months of the year, when parishioners attend evening Masses or faith formation programs. Ambient lighting will also be installed to illuminate architectural features, such as the church steeple.

Landscaping

Refreshing and refurbishing the landscaping surrounding the church and parish hall with plants that will complement the distinctive architectural design of these buildings.

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.
