Wish List

Our parish is striving to become more united. We think doing some across the board renewal projects will help us proclaim our unity amongst our diversity. The following projects need your financial backing.

MAJOR Projects:

  • Upgrade the sound systems at each Church location. We are in the communication business after all; communicating the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • Purchase new vestments for each Church location (except the Cathedral). This will provide the entire parish with the one matching set-matching those at the Cathedral.
  • Remodel the santuary of Holy Rosary Church.

Important additions:

  • A new Advent wreath for Sacred Heart Church (as you know, the last one burnt up) as well as new presider and deacon chairs at Sacred Heart Church that match the other magnificent architecture found there.
  • The local Knights of Columbus are seeking funds to purchase a new monstrance for St. Mary’s Cathedral Basilica. The cathedral lost its beautiful monstrance during Ike…how about we help replace it?

Willing to help?
