Renew & Rebuild

Our parish will not be conducting the 2017 Cardinal’s Annual Stewardship Appeal.  We are in the very early stages of a capital campaign called “Renew & Rebuild” that will seek to raise funds for some capital improvements and much-needed parish-wide initiatives.  Every parishioner will be asked to play a part in the campaign.  You will be hearing much more about our plans in the weeks ahead.  In the meantime, we ask that you pray for the success of this very important undertaking.
