CHRISTMAS WORSHIP SCHEDULE:
OUR BUILDING PROJECT IS A GO!
The Archdiocese has given its final approval for construction of the addition to our church! Thanks to your generosity, we will break ground in April for the new space.
The expansion will be built on the north side of the current structure, adding much-needed classroom and education space; a new north entrance and elevator to improve accessibility to the building; and expanded parking.
A model of the new addition and the floor plan are on display outside the parish office. We still welcome more contributions to furnish the new space and to pay down the mortgage.
