Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you. – Catechism of the Catholic Church 2834
It has been just about a year since we ended our persistent (179 weeks in a row) channel of communication on our Capital Campaign to Build Our Future, Serve Our Past. Since that time, we have completed $16.4 million in construction efforts on our campus, fully renewing nearly every square inch. We have recently reflected on our journey of the Capital Campaign, our challenges with Hurricane Irma, and the state of our Parish Family now that we see the light at the end of the construction tunnel. All of this effort required additional investments that were over and above the $11 million gathered in the Capital Campaign. While the insurance did defray a component of this cost, we have been left with about $1.8 million left to fund. The Diocese has graciously assisted us in this effort and will has allowed us to fund-raise again without impacting our CFA Assessment for the remainder of this shortfall. It is now up to us again, as we have done in the past, to rally together to Finish the Church.
The leadership of the Parish Family has determined we will complete this loan as quickly as possible, so we are making it our top priority financially, operationally, and functionally. This page will provide updates on the progress we are making on the loan, as well as special tidbits and information about our new church building. We will have opportunities for tours with our priests, and “behind the scenes” moments available for our Parish Family over the next year as we Finish the Church.
