This week’s construction picture is iconic. This red steel cross used to be attached to the outside north face of our old church/parish hall building. We saved it, and now it is purposely displayed in a position of honor at the (north) end of the new classroom hallway. I figured this one picture was all we needed for this week. Old meets new…

An assortment of behind-the-scenes construction pictures. We’ve labeled what each picture is as part of the filename so they should be self-explanatory.
 
 
Feb 14th

Not too exciting to look at, but it’s all about progress. The offices are the furthest along so they are already getting drywall in addition to window and door frames. The plumbing is also done in the office. And the final picture is the roof deck spray-on foam insulation in the Parish Hall.

Our construction drone showing the roof on the parish hall, the size of the classroom building (with outside walls), and the flat roof almost done on top of the office building. Lots of progress.
 
Jan 24th
The Parish Hall roof. All the trusses are in and they are in the process of sheathing it with plywood to close it in. Our framed walls from inside the offices. We’re definitely doing lots of framing/electrical/plumbing/HVAC work on the inside of the office building already, so it’s more than just what people can see from the outside.
 
 
Jan 11th
When roof trusses go, it’s really exciting. They are flying (with a crane) and installing the roof trusses on our new Parish Hall.
Jan 9th
The first picture is that of the OLV staff getting a chance to sign one of the steel beams before it went up in the Parish Hall. In addition, ALL of our structural steel beams are up. All of the walls have been framed and we’re starting to see ceiling joists and roof decking.
 

The first couple of pictures show we now have a roof over the new offices. The next pictures show we have our outside walls framed in the new parish hall.

For those who have yet to make a payment on your pledge, please consider doing so this month. We have been truly blessed by many parishioners who have paid pledges early and/or given an additional gift to ensure this project gets underway this year. Let us continue to pray for our benefactors, our building team, and the success of this campaign!!!

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN AND BUILDING PROJECT UPDATE Praised be Jesus Christ! We surpassed $2.8 million this past week on our way to the goal of $3 million in June. Thank you to all who are making this possible, we are truly blessed by your generosity. The architect is completing the final drawings that will be submitted to the general contractor soon, in order to begin the bidding process with subcontractors to build our new classrooms/meeting spaces, hall and kitchen, offices, and nursery. Once the bidding is complete, we will know the actual cost and can take that number, along with our total of pledges and donations collected, to the Archdiocese for final approval. Please continue to pray for the success of the campaign and building process. Thank you!!!

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN UPDATE – December 2016
Thank you very much for your continued generosity to our capital campaign for the building project. We are nearing the $2,000,000
goal which we hope to achieve by year end on our way to the $3,000,000 needed to break ground in June,2017. For those that committed to a one time gift or to accelerated giving on their initial pledge, this is just a friendly reminder for you. We know that the end of the year signals thoughts of tax deductions and we are so grateful that many of you keep the Church and our campaign in mind. May God bless you abundantly!
