Help Us Reach Our Fundraising Goal

To fund this project, we aim to raise as much as possible toward our project cost of $6.5 million, with additional funds approved for use from our capital reserve. This will not only enable us to complete this capital project but also preserve our capital reserve for future campus investments. Our church community sees this endeavor as more than a capital fundraising campaign. It is a unique opportunity to come together, celebrate our collective ministry, and leave a lasting legacy for the next generation of ministry at St. Katherine. 

We believe in the power of collective giving and the joy of offering our gifts in gratitude. Inspired by the spirit of willing givers in 2 Corinthians 8:12, we invite you to join us in making generous contributions to reach our vision. Your support will provide the necessary funds to realize our construction plans, setting a standard of generosity that inspires others.

For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what one does not have.
- 2 Corinthians 8:12

The Administration and Social Hall

Adjacent to the sanctuary, the expanded and modernized administration and social hall will be re-designed to meet the needs of our current generation of parishioners. This renovation will include repurposing and upgrading classrooms and space that better serves the parish office and ministry requirements.
