Buildings & Maintenance Collection
Parishioners and friends, thank you for your generosity to our Buildings & Maintenance Collection, which supports our 2019 boiler replacement project as well as numerous other facilities improvements in our parish. Donate online now!

In the fall of 2019, our parish took out a three-year loan for $250,000 in order to replace two failing steam boilers with several localized water heaters, located in both the church and school. In our facilities planning, we anticipated that this project was still several years away, but the surprisingly rapid deterioration of the boilers, and our inability to continue repairing them, necessitated that we take on this project immediately to ensure heat in our buildings during winter. Your generosity will allow us to pay off this debt sooner so that we can continue to allocate money towards other capital projects and needs in our parish.

Thank you for making a one-time or recurring donation to support the Buildings & Maintenance Collection to help fund this boiler replacement project. Each contribution will make a difference! If you have any questions, please contact Sean Kennedy at or 574-234-3134, ext. 17.

Quiet Evening in the Church
All are welcome to join on Monday, December 16, when the church will be open for quiet prayer before the Blessed Sacrament from 5-9pm. This is simply an opportunity to slow down and spend time with God in this Season of Advent. The Knights of Columbus will lead Rosary at 7:00. Come when you can and stay as long as you wish.
