A Future Full of Hope
I have GREAT news!
Our building designs are nearly final, and we’re planning to break ground in early 2018. As we began meeting with the building team and preparing to get building permits, our costs increased and we need to raise $600,000. Several parishioners have generously established a $300,000 matching fund. Can you help us reach our goal by making a new pledge or increasing an existing pledge today? No matter how big or small your pledge will make a difference, and it will be matched dollar for dollar! Thank you for your generosity!
Why are we doing this?
Our parish church has been a wonderful home to our community for the past 70 years, but following the completion of the upper church in 1964, almost nothing has been done to update our most important building. The renovation will provide needed fixes within the church, bring an added layer of beauty, and provide social space for our growing church.
The necessary fixes provide Lourdes with the opportunity to make our church look and feel the way we would like it to. the aesthetic upgrades will help us fulfill our mission of bringing the Gospel to the people of Denver.
