Parish Building Plan FEASIBILITY UPDATE

LETTER SENT TO PARISHIONERS 2/20/14

February 2014

Dear Parishioners,

The Breton Group, who we have contracted to conduct our Parish Feasibility Study, has presented the results of the survey to Parish Leadership and the Councils.  We are pleased to share with you this summary.

  • Parishioners recognize and appreciate the strong, responsible fiscal and pastoral leadership of Fr. Bill and his leadership team.
  • Parishioners appreciated the overall complexity of the project and the facility needs it is addressing.  You were particularly supportive of the common/central entrance, larger gathering space and a central administrative and ministry support area, perceiving these areas as priority.  Many noted their agreement with an investment in these components.
  • The size and scope of the project prompted parishioners to question the need for the proposed community center while also questioning the lack of attention to expanding seating in the church proper.
  • Although the majority of parishioners have positive feelings about the parish and its leadership in developing a thoughtful facility plan, parishioners are apprehensive and anxious about the $8.5 million total costs, which include substantial ($2.5 million) long term debt.
  • Parishioners indicated they would be more responsive to a scaled-back and re-prioritized project plan that addresses needs first, funded solely through a three-year capital campaign and existing funding sources.
  • The majority of parishioners are willing to make or consider a sacrificial campaign gift to a more modest project that does not require a substantial long-term loan.
  • Parishioners expressed generous availability and willingness to volunteer for a capital campaign and evidence of strong campaign leadership has evolved.

From the survey we believe the parish does have support for a more modest $4-$4.5 million capital campaign as part of an overall $5-$5.5 million facility project that does not require long-term debt.  We have started the process of re-prioritizing the plans and will be presenting a modified plan to the parish in the very near future.  Our goal is to begin planning for a Spring & Summer 2014 capital stewardship campaign.  It is an exciting time in our parish and we appreciate your input and support.  We heard what you said and we are revisiting the original plan to respond to your concerns.

Watch the bulletin, website and future mailings for further updates.  You can also contact the Master Planning Committee at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with your questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

The Feasibility Committee:

Fr Bill Langlois, John Strazanac, Jeff Beswick, Bill Collins, Deb Hekman, Tom Manderscheid, Gerry Witherell
