We Are So Close!

Help Us Retire Our Final Construction Funding Gap of $428,100 - 3% of a Four-Year $15.7M Campus Expansion and Restoration Project.

We are pleased to share that we are now just 3% away from fully funding our visionary $15.7M campus renovation investment for our children and those to come, with only $428,100 remaining to close the gap.   We're seeking support to complete the final elements of construction, including additional perimeter fencing, renovation of walkways and the main school plaza, and final landscaping work.

Be a Part of Our History With Your Special Gift Today!

We invite parishioners, school families, alumni, and friends of the school who have not had an opportunity to participate in the campaign and those who may have already contributed, to help our school close the 3% gap in funding.  Your gift or pledge will have a great impact!
