9 Phase 1 Proposed start date in October 2006

10 Pastoral Care Center What is it?  9 Private offices (2 of the 9 are for growth)  1 Conference room  2 Records storage rooms  Mechanical room  Lobby and reception area  Restrooms  Work Room for staff & volunteers

11 Proposed site

12 Pastoral Care Center Why Do We Need It?  Current office building has numerous structural barriers for efficiency and safety: including “fire trap” in basement, lack of handicapped accessibility crossing Elm St. for parking.  Several costly repairs needed: window replacement, foundation cracks, roof repairs and chimney leak.  Storage space is beyond capacity.  Confidential conference space is needed.  Over 30 parish ministries (beyond our elementary and high school ministries) are managed or supervised in the current space.  Room for growth while addressing current needs.

13 Early Childhood Education Center What is it?  4 New Classrooms –1 Preschool - 2 Kindergarten – 1 Extended Day  Restrooms that are “little people” friendly  Fully Secured – Safety Priority

14 Proposed site

15 Early Childhood Education Center Why Do We Need It?  4 new classrooms allow us to vacate the primary building. Cost savings of 80K in annual operating expenses upon vacating the building.  Prior to leasing the building on Spring Street, our 2 Kindergarten and Preschool were housed in the church basement.  Intervention specialists (3) and guidance counselor were outside the elementary building in “vans.”  Communication will improve among school staff members.

16 Why Do We Need It?  Library was expanded to a “Media Center” with internet access and multimedia availability.  Grades 3 and 4 are now on the Main floor of the Elementary building as opposed to school basement classrooms.  Classroom space is now needed due to numerous expanded course offerings including: Piano lab, Distance Learning Center.

17 Why Do We Need It? One classroom will be dedicated to our Extended Day Program for child care. This program has a 15 year history of taking care of children from 3 PM to 6 PM during the school year and 7;30 to 5:30 in the summer.One classroom will be dedicated to our Extended Day Program for child care.

18 MAKE$ $EN$E  Vacating Primary Building Saves $80,000 per year –Current operating costs for Primary Building are between 90 and 110k per year, depending on maintenance needs. –Our cost of utilities and maintenance for current church and school is $3.53 per square foot. Using that rate the new addition would cost $21,180.  New façade on gymnasium –Saves 20-30% in heating costs with new insulation

19 Parking Area What is it?  The current parking area is inadequate: –Special liturgies (Christmas, Easter) –Multiple events  Parishioners required to use neighboring streets –Safety Issues –Extreme difficulty for some –Inconvenient

32 Endowment  By December 2006 we will surpass $1 million in our foundation. –One Faith Many Blessings-adds $500,000 –Two recent bequests require 1/3 of the gift to be dedicated to the endowment which totals approximately $100,000  We believe that 10% of each gift for this proposed project be dedicated to the endowment for future maintenance and utility costs.  New investment strategy projects an additional $36,000 in revenues for the parish next year.

33 FAQ’S

34 How will we afford additional building when we do not make the budget # posted in bulletin regularly?  Proposed changes in phase 1will HELP budget. –Lower operating costs –Plant operations will be lower on new buildings. –Greater efficiencies –Capital expenditure versus operating costs.

35 How is this different from previous parish plans?  Offers expanded parking and improved traffic flow.  The gathering space is MUCH smaller  Addresses the needs of multiple ministries in the parish  Much lower capital and operating costs.  Takes a long range approach to parish development.

36 What about other Catholic Schools?  Visionaries revealed a desire among the community for 3 parish elementary schools and one shared high school.  Collaboration will continue in all other areas.  Need to right-size at our school remains.  Gifts given thus far are for development of facilities at St. Charles.
