Based on our 15 Year Master Plan, the Total Capital Goal is $3,000,000. The Master Plan dated April 26, 2019 was thoughtfully prepared with input from the parish and engagement of the architectural firm Behles + Behles located in Evanston, IL. The Master Plan was presented at the 2019 Spring Assembly.
The Stewardship Committee made a strategic shift in 2019 to combine the Capital Campaign into the Stewardship Ministry. The idea behind this change was to focus giving into “one ask” of our parishioners to include expenditures related to operating and capital needs. We even coined this equation:
STEWARDSHIP = OPERATIONS + CAPITAL
We intend to use stewardship proceeds to address the following parish capital project needs:
