3D Rendition of Our New Saint Sharbel Church Building
THIS IS TRULY AN EXCITING AND JOYFUL TIME in the life of Saint Sharbel Church. We are blessed to be a part of an active community of 470 families and growing.
In response to the many urgent needs and opportunities in our parish, we are building a new, modernized and centralized church. We have launched a capital campaign in December 2019 to achieve this goal.
Our campaign slogan is “Growing Together, Building in Faith,” reminding us of our history as a parish and how we have arrived at this pivotal moment.
Our mission remains to encounter Christ and be disciples using our God-given gifts of time, talent and treasure for the benefit of our church and community. A well-cared for and new facility is a critical part of that mission.
How We Get There
THROUGHOUT THE HISTORY OF OUR PARISH, the parishioners of St. Sharbel have built our church into a strong community of faith and stewardship. We are confident that this project will be met with a high degree of commitment and participation.
The estimated cost is $5 million. The church will contribute $1.4 million. $1 million has been raised in pledges and donations. The church will finance $1 million. The remaining $1.6 million will be raised with your help. Construction of the building is anticipated to start the summer of 2023.
We are counting on every member of our parish community to make a prayerful decision about how they will support this effort. Whether you participate by donating, giving online or attending a campaign event, it is your act of involvement that will make this campaign a success.
It is our time to reach even greater heights through “Growing Together, Building in Faith."
IN 2019, PLANS FOR THE NEW CHURCH WERE FINALIZED. In August 2022, the architectural and building plans were approved to start the next phase of our project. The results are exciting! The plans provide for a brand-new facility to be proud of! The new church and building will offer convenience in a centralized and safe environment for all parishioners who are active in parish life. It’s a plan to meet the needs of our community and build for generations to come.
We are making great progress towards our goal of $1.6M! Thank you to all who have pledged! We have collected $400K in pledges and donations! We have $1.2M to go! Let's keep that momentum & excitement up! Please return your Pledge Cards if you haven't done so already.
