Campaign Details

Our Parish Goal


Pledged over 5 years for the Called to Renew Campaign.

Our Parish Receives


To renew our parish and strengthen ministries.

Parish Needs

Church Restroom Renovations

This improvement would rebuild the restrooms for the church, making them safer, more accessible, more environmentally friendly, larger and useful for the community. This has been a frequent topic for parishioners.

Adoration Chapel

Our parish is privileged that it has an Adoration Chapel open twenty-four hours seven days a week. It is a blessing to announce that we plan to remodel it, to beautify it and especially to attend to some safety concerns for people who come late at night to pray.

Retreat Center

This improvement would create a retreat center along with a reflection garden. It would allow for more spiritual development and events, while also lessening shortage of meeting and event space. It will create a space to organize kerygmatic retreats helping more people have an encounter with Christ and grow in their Faith.

Parking Lot

The parking lot is the first thing people see when they come on campus. This improvement will reseal and renew the parking lot using part of our Called to Renew funds. It will allow us to plant some trees to beautify the space. Most importantly it will allow us to redesign and increase the number of parking spaces. It will also look at ways to improve drainage issues during storms. This will create a more welcoming and safe environment.


Lighting for Parking Lot, Church and Classrooms

Improved lighting will make St. John the Baptist safer and also be more environmentally friendly for the many events and users of the facilities.



We want to create a more youth friendly room for the youth and LIFETEEN programs. The youth are the future of the Church. We want to support them in whatever way we can so they can succeed as they grow and journey as disciples of Christ.


Parish School Ceiling and Teachers’ Lounge

The school is an important part of our parish community. Perhaps you have children who have attended, or currently attend our school. Maybe you are an alumnus. Studies show that students who attend Catholic Schools are more likely to remain Catholic as adults. We want to support our school by repairing the ceiling in the hallway, making it safer for use by the school and religious education program students and teachers. We also plan to create a teachers’ lounge adjacent to the classrooms to support the teachers by giving them a place to rest, have lunch or have meetings.

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.
