Strengthening Our Parishes (Parish Share): $22 Million
 

 Our Parish Share will be used for the following projects:

Expansion of the Social Hall, Classrooms and Youth Ministry Room, Parish Library: $160,000:     Blessed Sacrament Parish continues to need suitable space to carry out Christ’s mission.  Even with our present facilities, we are limited to the size of events we can have in our growing parish and there are constant challenges for meeting space.  Our Religious Education Program is still growing and it is requiring additional classroom space. In addition to educating our youth, parishioners of all ages will benefit from a Parish Library, where materials for spiritual growth, better understanding of our faith, and uplifting literature will be available to the entire parish community.  Finally, we recognize that our youth need a space dedicated to them and their needs.  We are committed to providing them with a large activity room of their own.  Our parish will use additional funds from parish savings to complete this project.

Renovation of the Parish Nursery: $10,000:    The parish nursery is long overdue for a renovation. Updating this facility will provide young families who choose to use it with a comfortable and modern facility.
