Parish Hall Renovation in Full Swing

The renovation of the St. Mary Parish Hall has been underway since the summer. Now, demolition is complete, and the leadership team is pricing out the floors.

Included in the renovations are remodeled bathrooms, an updated kitchen, and several room partitions to create private meeting spaces for the many ministries and organizations that are active in the parish.

The Parish Hall is expected to be completely remodeled by the end of November, at which point meetings and events can start being held there.

The Parish Hall remodel is part of a much larger renovation that will eventually encompass the main church, including the altar. To date, St. Mary has raised $1,037,852.00 and needs to raise $962,148.00 more to reach its goal, according to Stephen Warunek, the parish business manager.

“We continue to ask our parishioners to please donate to our renovation project if they are able,” said Father Dindo Billote, pastor of St. Mary. “Every little bit will help us achieve our goal of having a beautiful worship space!”
