Building Forward In Our Faith


Our "Building Forward In Our Faith" Capital Campaign is an important commitment to the legacy of St. Mary’s Catholic parish. The plan for our new facility builds upon our rich heritage by helping to  fulfill  St. Mary’s mission and vision of holiness, communion, and service.

The men and women who made the sacrifices necessary to build and grow St. Mary’s for more than a century have set a high bar for us today. In that spirit, over the last several months parish leaders  have carefully and prayerfully studied  a variety of structural design options to identify what is most needed for us to continue to grow as a vibrant Catholic community.

While the components of their endeavors have been expressed in the language of brick and mortar, the plan is designed to enhance our ability to belong, pray, serve, give and learn as  individuals and as a parish

Our overall parish goal is to raise $2.3 million. To reach this goal, every parishioner needs to participate in the spirit of true Christian stewardship. Not everyone can contribute the same amount, but every contribution will help our community prosper in faith in the future.

This page will be updated from time to time to provide you with information regarding the progress, communications and answers regarding our current campaign. If you have any questions or concerns, please email our parish office and we will ensure that your concern or question will be acknowledged and addressed in a timely manner.
