Building the Church of the Future
Established on November 7, 2004, through the process of discernment we, as a Parish, selected the Building Church While Building Church Committee. Initiated as a group of 12 parishioners and 5 ex-officio members. We believe in Christ, the Devine Builder, who calls us to build a community of faith, worship and service, to nourish generations of believers; therefore, through consensus and in peace, with reverence and respect for all, we commit the work of our hands to build a church that honors God by welcoming all people.
On January 27, 2013, we dedicated the new Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. In the spirit of Pope Francis, through a whole host of activities, such as our Catholic Revival, spiritual concerts and our monthly fellowship gatherings, our new church building provides us with new opportunities to become a more vibrant, joyful and welcoming community of faith. Now is the time to look to our future; complete our building plan, including an educational facility. Build the Church of our future. Our Children are the Church of our future.

Candidates will have 2 weeks to prayerfully consider giving their Time, Talent & Treasure to the building to our new space. On March 21 st at the end of 5 PM Mass, we as a parish will pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and we will choose 12 parishioners from the box of discerned candidates.

To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1 Building an Education Center will require more than a group of 12 parishioners.
