Parish Update – August 5, 2020
A Successful Finish for Faith, Family, and Futures!
Thanks to your generosity and perseverance, over the past 5 years, the Faith, Family, and Futures capital campaign raised approximately $650,000 to complete the major renovation of Gavan Hall, the addition of awnings for the school, flooring and windows throughout the school, air conditioning in the parish hall, and now we are completing the last major project, which is the renovation of storage space and the creation of a ground-level, accessible meeting room for the parish!
With Faith, Family, and Futures ending, I am proud of our parish and confident that we will soon be able to begin fundraising for the next big project (needed repairs on HVAC, plumbing, and electrical in the church/rectory).

Thank you for those who helped tear out the old playground matting! Watch for a new playground surface and parking lot repairs coming soon!
