Together We Grow

Together We Grow

Our parish continues to pursue the goals of the Together We Grow capital campaign as we endeavor to raise a minimum of $3,500,000. 

 

Campaign Update: 

 

  • As of May 31, 2019, we have collected $2,226,202.  That amounts to 63% of total pledges.
    • $468,254 of that has been used to pay off the parish debt.
    • $1,128,242 has been paid towards the $1,716,000 owed to the archdiocesan One Faith, One Hope, One Love campaign.
  • Archbishop Schnurr deferred our One Faith, One Hope, One Love commitment for the collection period of July - December, 2018.  Consequently, we have $403,944 on hand.
  • With those funds we have begun the specific design phase, working with the architects to achieve the specific, detailed final vision of the expansion.  
  • In order to break ground, we must have, in hand, 50% of the $1,284,000 budgeted for the expansion.
  • We must also continue to fulfill our remaining payment of $587,758 to the archdiocese.
  • The campaign is progressing well, but it will take time to reach that 50% benchmark!

 

THE ORIGINAL PLAN:

Together We Grow, combined with the archdiocesan One Faith, One Hope, One Love campaign, addresses our current and future needs while simultaneously supporting our archdiocese. We look towards our future with hope as our St. Max family continues to grow.

  • Eliminate the debt. 
  • Build a community room with a serving area for easier and more frequent fellowship opportunities.
  • Add a day chapel to be located near the Hospitality Room. 
  • Relocate the main entrance to the north window of the atrium.
  • Relocate the Rachel Weeping for Her Children statue in a dedicated and prominent location. 
  • Fulfill our parish obligation to the archdiocesan One Faith, One Hope, One Love campaign.

Any money raised beyond our $3,500,000 goal will be set aside for potential future expansions of the kitchen and meeting rooms in the Family Life Complex. 

THE REVISED PLAN:

The addition of a day chapel was determined not to be a significant want or need. A large multi-purpose room will go in the space allocated for the chapel. 

WHAT WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED SO FAR (Revised June, 2019):

✓ 3,519,558.21 (101%) of pledges made to meet the campaign goal of $3,500,000.

As of February 2018, the parish debt of $468,254 was completely paid off.

$1,128,242.12 has been paid towards the $1,716,000 owed to the archdiocesan One Faith, One Hope, One Love campaign.

As of May 31, 2019, 63% of pledges have been fulfilled.
