The Vision for the Growing Our Faith project is quite simple – to be a place where all are welcomed to worship, learn about their faith, find assistance with daily challenges, and build relationships.
For a parish and school of our size, we have only two rooms for program use and very little space to accommodate our exceptional program staff and the growth that we anticipate. We need more physical space to accommodate groups of all sizes and ages, to create space for a counselor, and to give our current space a much-needed face lift.
With your thoughtful input at town hall meetings and focus groups, we identified parishioner needs and our potential. The Growing Our Faith project will increase our space and flexibility to help us make our vision become a reality.
The new Parish Life Center will:
- provide us with more opportunities to build relationships through expanded programs and more space to gather,
- allow us to increase the number of programs we provide that allow parishioners to explore and expand their faith,
- help us provide space for much needed additional staff, such as an on-site counselor for parishioners who are struggling and a social media specialist who can improve our message delivery, and,
- provide space for unique communities to gather together: children, youth, volunteers, families celebrating a wedding or baptism, or families grieving a loved one.
