Meet the Architects and See the Plans September 28

Architects from SFS Architecture will present their recommendations and conceptual drawings for our capital campaign projects next Wednesday, September 28th at 6:30 pm. in the school cafeteria. The presentation will last about 30 minutes, followed by Q&A and viewing of renderings. The north building will be open until 8 pm. for those who want to look around and envision the changes.

Capital Campaign Update

(Published in the 7/24/16 bulletin)

We continue to work toward launching a capital campaign for a much-needed renovation to our north school building. We will meet with diocesan leadership in the next few weeks, and will welcome back our fundraising consultants from The Steier Group in Omaha. In addition to the north school project, we continue to explore the idea of a narthex/gathering space adjacent to church. Our goals are to more fully develop the project plans and visuals, and gauge parishioner support over the course of the campaign. At right is an updated rendering of what the space might look like from Meyer Boulevard.

St. Peter’s Capital Campaign to begin

(Published in the July 21, 2016 parish bulletin)

Dear St. Peter’s Parishioners,

I have exciting news to share with you. We have received the approval of the diocese and are moving forward immediately with a three-year, $6.2 million capital campaign.  It will include renovation of the north school building, debt repayment for the “Safe to School” project and continued exploration of a gathering space (narthex) between the church and school.

A representative from the Steier Group will arrive next week to help us organize our campaign. We will assemble a team to solicit donations, not only from parishioners and school families, but from alumni, community partners and charitable foundations. If you expressed a willingness to help with that process, thank you. You will be contacted soon

We will keep you informed as the campaign progresses and will continue to furnish conceptual drawings via email, church bulletin, our website and Facebook. There will be much work to do in the coming weeks and months, and I look forward as always to seeing how our parish family rises to the occasion. Exciting times lie ahead.

God bless,
Fr. Steve Cook

2013 State of the Parish Presentation

On February 6, 7, and 11, representatives from the parish presented the 2nd Annual State of the Parish address. This half hour slide presentation highlighted our accomplishments in 2012, reviewed the parish finances through December 2012, offered suggestions for ministries to participate in, shared our students academic achievements as measured by ITBS and other criteria, and set forth the goals we have for the coming year. To review the PowerPoint presentation, click here. Our faith community has much to be thankful for, and we are truly blessed. If you are a member of the parish, we hope you continue to give generously of your time, talent, and a treasure in the coming 2013-2014 fiscal year.
