Parish Needs


Painting the Church

It has been 20 years since the exterior of the Church was last painted. We will paint the exterior of the Church, as well as some of the other buildings for the sake of uniformity and aesthetics.

Renovation in the Old Church

The old church is dark and gloomy. We will replace the windows and security grills on the western side to make the church brighter. Walls and ceiling will be skim coated and old wood panels will be refurbished.

Church Pews & Kneelers

The pews in the Church get used a lot and are beginning to show their age. We will refurbish the pews and replace all the kneelers to provide a more comfortable worship space for all.

Parking Lot

The parking lot needs resurfacing. The asphalt is beginning to crack and is thinning in some places. We need to resurface the parking lot to prevent further damage.

Acoustic Treatment & Sound System Enhancement

During Mass we celebrate the Liturgy of the Word, and the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Sometimes it is difficult to hear either part due to poor acoustics in the Church. We will improve the acoustics and update the sound system by replacing microphones and repairing/installing speakers.


Modular Offices for Spiritual Direction

Our OMV ministry in the Spiritual Exercises has been very successful. We currently have 35-40 certified Spiritual Directors and about 350 spiritual directees. We simply do not have the space to accommodate all of the one-on-one meetings which take place each week. We will provide six modular office spaces.

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
