A few years ago, St. Mary’s raised $2.1 million for Phase I of a 2-phase project that updated our worship space with new windows and carpeting, improved our HVAC system, and completely paid off our debt with the diocese left from previous projects. Then, Covid halted our Phase II plans and changed the world. We scrambled to reach out to all parishioners on the phone; started streaming Mass online; and adjusted to a world where we have new considerations about health, comfort levels, and personal space.

Now that we’re worshiping together again, we are ready to finally re-visit our needs for Phase II, but – more importantly – we need to ensure that our parish community feels welcomed and recharged. Initially, Phase II included an updated entry space and a more formal, prominent church entrance. Is that still what we want? How will a new building project help enhance St. Mary’s and help us thrive?
