At Our Lady of Peace, we know that our Lord is with us whenever we gather for worship, to study His word, and to come together for fellowship.
Our beloved church has served our community for the past 50 years. With expected growth in our greater community during the next decade and beyond, it is time to upgrade and expand our current facilities.
Parish leadership, during the past several years, has created a vision for what our parish will be in the next 50 years. Originally, our plan was to build a new sanctuary. That plan has been revised and we now look to expand our sanctuary, and build new classrooms and a parish hall.
The Honoring our Past, Grounded in Faith, Building our Future Capital Campaign is the initial step toward fulfilling this vision. Your support is needed. Many of you have given to the Building Fund, and that support will serve
as the foundation for this project. Our parish is grateful and thanks you. All parishioners, including those who have supported the Building Fund, are being asked to step forward and add their support in what will finish this project. Our parishioners are quick to share the talents bestowed on them. You give your time and your treasure.
Your parish is asking you, once again, to be generous.
Prepare Our Lady of Peace for the next half-century of ministry and service to our parishioners and community.
Expand and upgrade our sanctuary, and replace our parish hall and classrooms.
Our Lady of Peace’s renovation project began with the replacement of our current parish hall and classrooms. They have served us well, but are showing their age. Building new will provide us with facilities that will allow the parish to thrive for generations to come.
The next step in this renovation project is to extend and upgrade our sanctuary. The relocation of our parish hall and classrooms makes way for the sanctuary to be extended to the west. This allows for additional worship space and provides long-needed upgrades, such as electrical, mechanical and ADA. In addition, the roof will be replaced and properly insulated.
Building a new parish hall and classrooms, to be situated directly west of the sanctuary, is the initial step in the parish renovation project. The new parish hall will allow for social gatherings attended by up to 254 people. The classrooms will serve many purposes, including our critical religious education program. One of our callings is to help our youth grow in their love for Jesus Christ and learn about the Catholic faith.
Although there are several steps to this renovation project, construction will be completed in phase. Phase I was completed in April 2021. Timing on the completion of Phase II will be determined once finances are in place and construction will occur to cause the least disruption to parish activities.
