Building the Way to Heaven
Due to the unprecedented growth of our Parish over the past several years, Father Peter, your Pastor, and the Finance Committee determined the need for a long-term strategic plan to manage and accommodate this growth. Subsequent to the construction of our new church in August 2013 - which was completed without incurring any debt - it was obvious that further expansion was going to be needed to serve the needs of our parishioners.
Since our church was dedicated in August 2014, over 2,300 new parishioners have joined. Each week more join to become a part of our parish family. Thus, our new church needs to expand and will add permanent seating for 800. The Building the Way to Heaven capital campaign was developed to provide financial resources to complete Phase II of our strategic plan.
