A few months ago, my priest asked Tasha and I to participate in a feasibility survey to look at the possibility of remodeling our beloved Saint Mark Catholic Church in Westminster CO. Before long, we were asked to act as campaign directors for this effort. Since then, we have produced a video outlining the project and we now have archdiocesan approval for the project. That means it is time for the fun part: the fundraising.
Below is a link to the video, which outlines the reasons why this remodel is important. We need to raise $6.2 million dollars. It seems like a lot of money, and it is. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the current Saint Mark building, and we looked at every option including bulldozing the entire building and starting over (that would have taken about $9 million). To bring the building up to code, we would have to spend $1.5 million to do anything to add to the structure. We all feel like the time is now to make a significant change, especially considering the demographics and growth of the Church.
We aim to build a renovated Church that can help us outreach to the growing community, and attract more families to our parish. If you are able to help financially with a one-time or recurring donation over the next 36 months, please contact me. This is very important to Tasha and I, and can help us build the Kingdom of God here on Earth. Please prayerfully consider helping us.
