See the Designs for the New Lobby

Thanks to everyone who came to their presentation after all the Masses on June 9th & 10th.

If you'd like to comment on any of their designs,









Here's the first in our video series on why we're having a campaign to renovate the parish campus. Enjoy!




Let's Build! Begins

We've started our already successful campaign to raise $1.75 Million (and beyond) to renovate the parish campus.
Over a half million dollars has already been contributed by 67 households before the official start of the campaign.

One percent of parishioners have already provided 25 percent of our goal. Now it's time for the 99 percent!

If you didn't receive our brochure in the mail, you can download it here.



And when you're ready to pledge, you can download your pledge form here. Please consider a multi-year pledge so you can give more over time and help us go beyond our goal.

Thank you.
