An exciting component of the Strategic Plan is our multi-year effort to renovate our parish campus. The intent is to both enhance functionality and ensure long term sustainability.
On May 22 we reopened our parish Hall after a major face-lift, including important accessibility improvements. We committed to these projects because we believe they will help us reach beyond ourselves, extend hospitality, and cultivate community.
The information on what we have done and what we plan to do, along with before and after photos, is included below as a thank you to those who contributed to the effort and an encouragement to get you excited about what is to come.
