Construction on the New Church has Started!

I am happy to say that we have kicked off construction on our new church! Temporary fencing is being installed around the perimeter of the construction site and our construction company, CCI, will begin working on site this week as well as working on the dry detention pond to the west. 
Beginning (Monday/tomorrow) April 19 you will notice some changes to our parking and entrances. In addition, we will be moving the daily Mass time Monday through Friday to 9am. This is to help alleviate traffic between school drop off and daily Mass. The Saturday Mass will remain at 8:30am. Our weekend Mass times will remain the same.
There will be two areas in our existing lot to park - the northeast corner off of Circle Drive and the west area accessible at the Renson Road entrance. Parking will also be along the north side of Renson Road. For the weekend Masses, the west side of Circle Drive will be for handicap parking. Thanks to the generosity of Hartland North, there will be additional parking at their school lot off of Nixon Avenue on the weekends. Daily Mass attendees should be able to find parking at the northeast corner and on the west side of Circle Drive. These designated parking areas will be on map (see button below) and in our communication. I also ask that you please be mindful of our neighbors during this time and follow the Village street signs. 

Designated Parking Areas Map

Starting next weekend, April 24th and 25th, we will have three ways to enter the building for weekend Masses – through the Borromeo Room doors (off of Circle Drive), through the Renson Road door (by the Tot Lot Playground), and at the Gym entrance. The school elevator will be available for handicap accessibility if you enter at the Gym. We will have signage directing you through the school to the church.
Plans are being made for a ceremonial groundbreaking after an 11am Mass.  We will regularly keep you informed of any updates. We are extremely grateful to all of you for your prayers and support of the Cornerstone Project.

Important Message from Fr. Ken!

It is with great pleasure to tell you that the Archbishop has signed our proxy to build a new church! I want to thank the Building and Planning Committees for their selfless commitment of time, and countless 6 am meetings over the past six years. To all the donors of the Cornerstone Project, I am humbled by your generous financial support to make this project a reality. There is much to accomplish in this next phase, but I know that these are things we can work on together, with your continued support and God’s blessings.  I will keep you informed as we plan for a spring groundbreaking.
