FGG_MilestoneMosaic-May15

The capital campaign for our building project, entitled “For God’s Glory,” is on a great track! But the job ain't finished yet! We are excited and confident about achieving our goal to raise $6,800,000.  The commitment and support from our parish community has been strong.

Thus far, we have received pledges for $6.25 million towards our Campaign Goal!

We continue to track our progress with the campaign with this unique graphic which we call our Milestone Mosaic. The mosaic depicts various images of our parish community.  You might even find yourself in the images.  As pledges are made, we will reveal various “tiles” of the mosaic until the whole image is revealed when we meet our campaign goal.

As the campaign progresses towards achieving our goal of $6.8 million, let’s pause and think about how our new facilities will be able to accommodate our many, many parish programs. Centered in prayer, these programs and activities offer many opportunities for deepening our Catholic faith through fellowship and education.

The building project will result in the creation of the following spaces for our parish:

Adoration Chapel – New chapel for 24/7 Adoration and Mass with seating for 25 to 35 people.

Banquet Hall – Seating for 350 to 400 in a room that is divisible into two meeting spaces (for simultaneous functions) with an adjacent commercial kitchen and pantry.

Atrium and Grand Hall – Gathering Spaces connecting north transept of the church to new spaces in Parish Center.

Preschool – Renovation of the former convent into four classrooms, room for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, offices, exercise room, restrooms, and exterior playground.

School Classrooms and Conference Room – Two new classrooms for Language Arts and Music with a new adjacent multifunction breakout/conference room.

School Elevator – New elevator at the west end of the existing school corridor to connect all three floor levels of the school and the floor level of the proposed Parish Center.

Restrooms, Coat Room, and Storage Rooms – Men’s, Women’s, Family and Student Restrooms, Coat Room near Vestibule, and three Storage Rooms.

Parish Grounds Improvements – A new Prayer Garden, a new drop-off area and accessible parking spaces at the main entrance to the Parish Center, additional parking spaces near our new Preschool and along the east edges of our existing parking lot, improved storm drainage.
