Special Collections


Through the generosity of parishioners, annual special collections support the Church’s works of social justice, evangelization, catechesis, and national and local institutional development, domestically and around the world.

Capital Campaign


Funds raised in this campaign will be used to address both the age of the assets and bring school and parish buildings up to date on safety and ADA standards. A significant portion will be used to improve and extend the useful life of the existing facilities. This includes improvements to the structure, mechanical and electrical systems of the church, school and gymnasium.
