The Lord has built up a wonderful community here at St. Thomas Aquinas, and in order to prepare for the future, we need to renew our facilities and commitment to our Church, connect more deeply as a faith community, and grow together as a parish family. For these reasons, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church has begun a Capital Campaign.
I am SUre that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." Philippians 1:6
Every 6 months, updates will be compiled to show the progress of the Campaign. Please see the following updates for the latest participation and project status reports.
Goals and plans
In planning for present renewal and future growth, our Capital Campaign has established $1.8 million as the financial mark needed to address the current and coming needs of our parish. We will look to first eliminate our remaining debt of $207,000. Then, we will complete subsequent projects only after the needed funds for each have been raised. These projects, which we hope to complete as soon as possible, include some much overdue maintenance of the rectory, upkeep and renewal for our current Church buildings, and well-planned individual projects to increase the capacity and functionality of our facilities. After these crucial projects have been completed, we will invest into planning for our future through various projects that look to increase both the size and appeal of our parish. Attached you will find a document that presents our Capital Campaign in full.

God our Father, Lord of Heaven and earth, we praise and thank You for blessing our parish. Fill us with the fire of Your love, that a zeal for Your house will guide Saint Thomas Aquinas parish as we renew, connect, and grow. Bless our parish members with a deepening connection to Christ and bless our capital campaign. Show us how we can support each other, the Church, and generations to come. We ask all this in the name of Jesus, Your son, in the full hope of His promise that when we ask rightly, You give generously.
