Commitment Weekend Was a Success!

08-06-2023Campaign Progress

Thank you to all who have pledged and/or donated to the Capital Campaign. We are so grateful to the parishioners, ushers and Knights of Columbus that volunteered and assisted with the distribution and collection of pledge cards during Commitment Weekend. While this first phase of the campaign has come to a close, please remember that prayers, pledges and donations are still needed to help us reach, and hopefully surpass our goal.

Pine Trees Removal Schedule

07-23-2023Campaign Progress

Removal of the five pine trees at the Stonewall House will begin on Monday, July 24. This will take approximately 10 days. During that time the drive down the left side of the church will be closed while they are working. The house will not be able to be used during the day and we will reschedule meetings to a different location. We apologize for the inconvenience.


Capital Campaign Frequently Asked Questions

07-02-2023Campaign Progress

How is Saint Rose of Lima determining the pledge amounts that we are asking families to consider?

The request amounts are based on several factors, including giving history and the answers shared in the feasibility study. Our goal is to challenge everyone to consider supporting Saint Rose of Lima above their usual giving. We ask each family to prayerfully consider a manner of giving, and we encourage you to give an amount that is meaningful and sacrificial to your family.


Pathway to Progress: Be a Part of Developing the Plan

Volunteer Opportunities (Help Needed!!) –Wayne Overman is leading an effort to get the ball rolling, but he is asking the “parish at-large” for some specialized assistance as listed below. If you have this expertise or know of someone in our parish that does and is willing to donate time to help this effort, please drop Wayne a note at or call/text 615-414-5731. We are not asking for a huge commitment of time, just a few hours here and there. We are hoping to build a database of skills in our parish that can assist us in moving the program forward. As the program progresses, we will be reaching out for other skills that will be needed, so stay tuned!

We are progressing with our information gathering toward construction / renovation plans:

  • We have completed on-site sampling for asbestos and lead paint surveys in the Marian Center. We found some lead paint in isolated areas. The results for asbestos are due around June 9.
  • We are also working on renovation alternatives for the Marian Center including demolition and new construction.
  • We have a Purchase Order in process for the removal of the tall pine trees at the Stonewall House. Work is to be scheduled in the next few weeks.
  • We are continuing to work on our update of the Masterplan focusing on space needs and how best to use the property that we purchased to the north of our campus.

Since the One Faith, One Family, One Parish Capital Campaign kicked off one month ago, our efforts have started to produce fruit. Our kick-off event and donations over that weekend produced $32,069. We have received an additional $48,500 from the initial efforts of our volunteers. Combined with $532,816 already reserved for our campaign, we have raised $613,385 towards our efforts. This means we have almost reached our goal for Phase One construction outlined in the case statement.

The One Faith, One Family, One Parish Capital Campaign is underway. By now, everyone in our parish family should have received their pledge packet in the mail.

Thank you to our volunteers for working diligently to get us to this point. I also would like to thank our donors, in advance, for their generosity. While there is much to celebrate, much work remains to be done. In the coming weeks, volunteers will reach out individually to parishioners.
