BACKGROUND

Information

Throughout 2019 and 2020, we have been holding parish town hall meetings to discuss renovation projects for the parish. This past January, we discussed the next steps of planning a convent renovation and explored the possibility of renovating the church sanctuary.

Following those town halls, we found the response overwhelmingly positive, and we took a poll of the parish regarding the sanctuary and found that 90% of parishioners were in favor of seeking renovation designs.

Before the pandemic began, we therefore moved forward in commissioning designs for both the convent and sanctuary projects. The initial designs were available and shared through a digital town hall.

After the virtual town hall, we received much positive feedback. The next town halls on September 9, 2020, are an opportunity to continue moving forward in the conversation. No fundraising appeal of any sort has begun and there is no concrete timeline for the projects. More details will be discussed at the town halls.

We hope that this will continue to be a positive experience. Despite the times of trouble we are currently living in, a hopeful and exciting future for our parish awaits ahead!

CONVENT RENOVATION

CONVENT

Information

The convent is currently unoccupied. We are planning to turn the convent into a parish center. This would give space for our various ministries and parish groups to meet and carry out their missions. The Social and Youth Ministry Offices (currently located in the Aberdeen House) would be moved into the convent, allowing us to put the houses up for sale. The Emmaus House (9 Aberdeen Road) is currently unused.

The third floor of the convent would be able to be rented out to a non-profit whose mission follows the teachings of the Catholic Church. No decision has been made on what non-profit would rent the third floor.

Father Scolaro explained more of the details in the last town hall which can be found here.

The renderings have not been finalized and are subject to change.

SANCTUARY RENOVATION

SANCTUARY

Information

Throughout 2019 and 2020, we have been holding parish town hall meetings to discuss renovation projects for the parish. This past January, we discussed the next steps of planning a convent renovation and explored the possibility of renovating the church sanctuary.

Following those town halls, we found the response overwhelmingly positive, and we took a poll of the parish regarding the sanctuary and found that 90% of parishioners were in favor of seeking renovation designs.

The design consists of elements combining the design of the original church and the current sanctuary. It includes a side altar to our Blessed Mother, a side altar to St. Joseph, and a free standing altar that would resemble the original high altar.

The design has not been finalized. More details will be discussed at the parish town halls on September 9.
