The CK2050 fundraising campaign began in 2016 as a result of the community’s desire to address the Energy, Safety, and Capacity concerns of the parish school. The Lay leadership of the community, in conjunction with Fr. Larry, opted to capitalize on the To Teach Who Christ is Campaign of the Archdiocese to best meet the needs of our local community folding the fundraising campaigns into one. As a result of the campaign, we are in the process of bridging the school and convent to give us the secure entrance that modern school buildings are able to provide. The complete gutting and renovation of the convent will give us the needed capacity to properly house kindergarten classrooms as well as a new music room, a new art room, and a new media center. These additions will complete the project that began with a completely new heating, cooling and lighting system for the school. The campaign also provided a desperately needed new sound system for the church. The work on the school building is underway, but so is the need of your financial support. We are actively fundraising to see these plans come to fruition.
Please contact Fr. Larry Sullivan at the rectory 773-238-4877 to discuss making a gift to the CK2050 Capital Campaign. Thank you for your prayerful consideration and support.
