Building to Serve

Phase 1 Buildings

Education Building

This new facility will provide classrooms, meeting rooms and a place for the parish leadership to conduct business. 



The new chapel will be a beautiful and peaceful place to be with our Lord. It will never close and will be perfect for offering prayers and 24-hour adoration.

Prayer Garden

The prayer garden will grant a venue to experience the unique perspective of the Heavenly Father’s creative and provisional grace that nature offers.

Building to Serve Goal

Currently at $1,194,029 of our $5, 000, 000 goal. 


*$447,000 thanks to a generous bequest fromMargaret Francis and other parishioners’ lead gifts.

A Note from Father Joseph


St. Michael the Archangel is a very busy place.  Services  include religious and spiritual formation for all ages, social and service organizations,  retreats, adoration,  prayer,  Sacraments, etc.  All these activities make use of our facilities to the point that it is difficult to get your desired activity scheduled.  There is a great need to expand our building.


In light of these needs, we have made plans for a new adoration chapel, with the hope of having 24 hour adoration in the future; additional classrooms, so that our growing faith formation program does not have to turn anyone away because of limited space; improved offices, which will increase the safety of our lay employees and permit us to repurpose the present offices; a gymnasium with a storm shelter, for recreational activities and large gatherings; a prayer garden; a maintenance workshop; and more parking spaces.  These plans are posted in the narthex for your perusal.


Thanks to a bequest from Margaret Francis, we have a good start in raising the funds necessary for us to grow and serve.  We have announced the plan to build and improve.  We have secured the permission of Bishop Burns in establishing a Building Fund for our project.  Furthermore, we have more than $200K  from our part of the Our Faith, Our Future Capital campaign for the diocese.  A few parishioners have made significant contributions in memory of their loved ones.  We have about $916K dedicated to this project.  The estimated cost is around $5M. Now is the time for all of us to step up and pledge to help fund this exciting phase in the history of Saint Michael parish.
