    What is the cost of construction and how will we fund this amount? Psalm 127:1 Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. The current estimated cost to build is between $6 and $7 million. A previous capital campaign, in the early/mid 2000’s, raised approximately one million dollars. The Finance Committee has overseen investments of these funds, which are now worth $2.8 million dollars. These funds are restricted to activities towards planning and building a new church, as well as related facilities. Our goal is to raise a minimum of $4 million in the capital campaign through parishioner giving and contributions from friends of the parish. To learn more, please plan on attending the campaign kick-off event in the Parish Hall on Sunday, September 25 after 10:30 a.m. Mass. There will be a presentation followed by lunch, door prizes and socializing with other parishioners! We ask that you pray for God’s guidance throughout this process as well as the campaign volunteers and entire parish.

    August 21st, 2022 Update Why do we need to build a new church? Hebrews 3:4 - "For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God." There are two primary issues creating an urgency to build a new facility. The first issue is a growing Corcoran community. By 2040, there will be an estimated 2,000 new housing units in Corcoran and the population is estimated to grow 103.6% from 5,600 to 11,400. We want to be ready to welcome these families as they choose a church home. Second, the current church is too small and often experiences overcrowding. For example, past attendance has been 300, in a 160-person capacity church, on Ash Wednesday, Easter and Christmas Masses. People entered and left due to overcrowding. Other reasons include ADA and accessibility issues, as well as safety concerns with crossing County Road 10. To learn more, please plan on attending the campaign kick-off event in the Parish Hall on Sunday, September 25 after 10:30 a.m. Mass. There will be a presentation followed by lunch, door prizes and socializing with other parishioners!
