Revitalizing in Christ - Raising the Roof!
Saint John Fisher Parish —
A Merger of People, Resources and Mission
We have come together in a merged parish with our ministries, friendships, and good works. The opportunity to remodel St. John Fisher Church with the proceeds from the sale of the Holy Saviour property and using some of the salvaged and restored Catholic liturgical pieces is a unique opportunity. A remodeled church would combine features of Immaculate Conception, St. John Fisher, and Holy Saviour churches as our parish merger has brought together parishioners. Improvements to the church will increase the beauty, devotional atmosphere, and function of the space for sacraments, while improving handicap accessibility.
We are excited to announce the Saint John Fisher Parish Capital Campaign, REVITALIZE IN CHRIST - RAISING THE ROOF, with the goal of raising $450,000. Combined with other funds already on hand, our goal will enable us to create an inviting, beautiful space for worship and hospitality. Many preparations have been made for this undertaking. Sacristy remodeling was done by parishioners, the Religious Education Office was unified and moved to the Rectory, stained glass windows and marble were removed from Holy Saviour and sent off for reconditioning, and Architectural design work was begun. The launch of the Capital Campaign begins the next step of planning for construction. We will be seeking Archdiocesan approvals, hiring a general contractor, and planning for Masses to be said in the Parish Center from May through September while the construction is underway.
How much will remodeling cost, and how will we pay for it?
