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


The roofs on the church, parish hall, and parish center have exceeded their life expectancy, and patching sections is only delaying the inevitable. Replacing these roofs will prevent future damage to the interiors of the buildings.

Parking Lot

Our parking lot provides a poor first impression of our campus. Repaving its surface will create a more welcoming and safe environment for visitors and parishioners.

Parish Hall

Installing new appliances, blinds, an upgraded sound system, and carpeting near the stage will provide much-needed improvements and upgrades to our parish hall.

Church Confessionals

Modernizing the confessionals will ensure current and future parishioners can comfortably participate in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.


Painting the exterior of the rectory is long overdue. We will also purchase new appliances, such as a freezer.

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
