OUR MISSION BEHIND BUILDING COMMUNITY
Under the guidance of our pastor, Father Tom Cloherty and the president of the school Chad Evans, with diocesan approval, we are proceeding with the initial planning stages and consult hiring. The Prince of Peace Building Committee will focus on building community by nurturing and executing the building campaign vision, “People of Purpose”.
The building campaign initiative is a purposeful effort to capture our past, strengthen our present, and strive for the future as we seek to thrive as a family of Faith, Hope, and Love, in order to build up the body of Christ, which is us, the Church.
It is Fr. Tom’s intention that we achieve this through one collective spirit growing in Body, Mind, and Soul. The Christian life provides an adventure for each of us. We need strength and courage to proclaim the Gospel, for this allows us to rejoice each time the Lord triumphs in our lives. We must fortify in full the Body, Mind, and Soul.
This campaign is not meant for a small group but rather for all of us to participate. Building campaign results will permit opportunities for us to grow in our holiness and evangelize in ways we are currently not achieving. Our desire is to restore ourselves who are the living temple, harnessing the effects of our formation so it can sustain us, and improve our community bond. Now is the time to purposefully grow our Body, Mind, and Soul.
ABOUT OUR BUILDING COMMITTEE
Those called to serve on a building committee are strong witnesses of faith who are, or have been, involved in many of the parish’s ministries. Their familiarity with ministry programs and activities gives them insight into how a building project can capitalize on opportunities for growth, outreach, and service.
The Prince of Peace Building Committee will focus on building community by nurturing and executing the building campaign vision, “People of Purpose”. The long-term goal of the building committee is to support our purposeful campaign to renovate, construct, and repair physical areas of the campus. Committee members will provide advice and recommendations through collective wisdom.
The duties of the building committee will be to carry out assigned tasks, organize activities, recruit volunteers, and oversee the completion of activities. Initially, the committee will fully engage in the design process. Later, the committee’s role will evolve into an active project advocate and parish communicator.
The building committee will meet regularly. The committee will utilize parish input to help guide outside professionals, follow diocesan building procedures and policies, become familiar with essential guidelines such as Built of Living Stones and report progress to the parish on a timely basis.
The building committee will be in collaboration and charity with one another while keeping the mission of the project at the forefront of all deliberations and discussions.
