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

Parish Hall

$72,800 Our parish hall is the social center of our parish life. It is used for everything from meetings to meals. To better use this space, we would like to put doors on the west side (back of the church side) to utilize the courtyard for dining and gatherings. This will enrich our social life as a parish.

Fans for the Church

$6,900 During the hotter months, the temperature in our church can get uncomfortable. We will purchase industrial-style electric fans to help cool our church and make our space more comfortable for worship.

Outdoor Gathering Space

$40,000 We are always in need of additional shade areas for dining, swap meet, the carnival, clothing sales, etc. We would like to remove the grass that runs the length of the House of John Paul II, lay a concrete walkway, and extend the current carport covering in front of the north side of the House of John Paul II. This is valuable space which could be used for many parish functions.

Parish & School Security

$50,000 Installing automatic gates will give school parents greater peace of mind during the school day and further secure our campus and Parish.

Campus Improvements

$100,000 We will install a pergola to help shade the walkway between the back of the church and hall.

House of John Paul II: Chapel

$13,500 We celebrate many sacraments throughout the week. This renovated chapel will be used for this purpose for small groups. In addition, it will serve as a place of prayer and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. It currently looks very old and run down. It lacks the dignity needed for the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. We would like to renovate this small chapel for sacramental and prayer purposes. The renovation would include: a new ceiling, flooring, lighting, paint, pews, and tabernacle. In addition, we would like to remove the old confessional to gain some extra space. Finally, we would like to create a retablo behind the altar.

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
