Big changes are happening at St. Mike’s and we couldn’t be more excited as a parish family!
Your gifts and generosity are making this transformation possible. Thank you very much!
Plans for the campus of St. Michael’s have been very fluid as much of the budgeting and planning has focused on accomplishing the goals for the campus (outdoor stone kitchen and bar area, new soccer fields, new offices, new parish hall & expanded parking).
We are very excited to share with you the proposed plans for the parish office building, which will provide a spacious place for both offices for staff and a place we can serve our community.
Church leaders gathered on a rainy and very cold Sunday to bless the grounds and share prayerful words during an official groundbreaking ceremony.
Those in attendance included Bishop Talley, capital campaign chairs and committee members, Diocesan leaders and members of the construction, engineering and architectural design teams, among others connected to the project who gathered to show their support and enthusiasm.
The groundbreaking ceremony featured welcoming remarks from Eustice Corrigan, the Chair of the Finance Committee as well as large contributing supporter, followed by remarks from both Father Ben Bradshaw and Bishop Talley. Bishop Talley blessed the foundation site and shortly after readings were recited and prayerful intentions were made.
At the conclusion, ceremony participants took turns with shovels in the ground to ceremoniously toss dirt at the foundation site.
We at St. Michael’s ask for God’s blessings upon the construction work site and ask for your continued prayers for the Lord’s help as we build a campus for both the parish and surrounding community.
We also ask that you lift up prayers that God will bring this construction to its successful completion and that His protection will keep those who work on it safe.
Demolition began with asbestos abatement, utilities disconnect, shortly after the old rectory was torn down.
A new home has been purchased for our priests which the both the priests and parishioners will enjoy for years to come.
Thank you most for your continued support!
The St. Michael Campus is really starting to take shape!
The outdoor stone kitchen and bar has been beautifully completed. the soccer Fields are well on their way to welcome players for our the first game, and we can officially check the demo of the rectory and old parish office building off of our list.
Thank you so much for your prayers, support, and generosity!
