Parish Needs


Church Renovation

Beauty is an integral and essential part of our Catholic liturgy and is indeed a gift from God. Our church was built in 1968 and it is time for us to restore some of the beauty and luster to our church by installing new colored glass windows on the west and east sides, replacing the baptismal font with a new font at the entrance of the church, and repairing back wall due to falling stones.

Old Convent Renovation

Renovating the old convent into a Parish Center will house all parish offices, provide additional office and meeting space, and a youth area for fellowship and gatherings. In addition, we will add new bathrooms on the 1st floor and convert the entrance to conform with ADA requirements.

School Playground Repair

Our school playground is multi-purpose for our parish community as it also serves a parking. Our school playground needs attention, and we will use Called to Renew funds to patch, slurry coat and restripe the area. These upgrades will make this area more functional and safer for our parish and school 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.
Archbishop José H. Gomez
