Potential Rectory Project
On Tuesday, January 19, Fr. Ryan held a Zoom Q&A to discuss the potential rectory project. Watch below:
Holy Family Catholic Community recently commissioned a facilities study to assess the structural and ministerial needs of our six parishes. The results of that study are still in process, however, it is evident to our Facilities and Maintenance Committee the repairs needed at the three rectory buildings we own will cost over $500,000 to adequately repair and upgrade them, and we would still have old buildings after the renovations.
Does it make sense to invest a sizable amount of money into three aging buildings? Or, should we explore the possibility of constructing a new rectory at the Holy Family Church site where our priests serving Holy Family can live and work together? We are exploring the feasibility of constructing a new rectory at our Holy Family site.
Initial conversations have been very positive and I am excited to report that to date a number of sizable gifts totaling $400,000 have already been made to this project. The total project cost could be $1.5 to $1.8 million.
In the weeks ahead, I will be sharing with you more news about this proposed project, the results of this survey and the outcome of the rectory committee meetings. Your input on this project is extremely important! If you have any questions or thoughts you would like to share, I invite you to send them to me via email at email@example.com.
In the meantime, I ask that you please continue to pray for our parish and for clarity as we explore this project.
