New Activity Center
The ACM Capital Campaign Committee has been formed and have had two meetings. Next CCC Meeting will be October 14, 2023. Please pray for Father, committee members, and Father Roger.
The ACM Building Committee has been formed and has been meeting since 2022. The ACM BC worked with the Archdiocese to vet, interview, meet, and hire the Architect Company, Merriman Hold Powell Architects.
The current Activity Center's existing skeletal structure will remain, while the building will be renovated inside and out. The current garden/backyard will be converted into a semi-enclosed playground between the new Activity Center and the new education center. The new education center will be built on the field between the church building and the garden.
The total cost of the project is $7.7 million, to include the cost of design, renovation of the old activity center, construction of the new building, retention pond, covered walkway, cost of furnishing, fixtures and lighting, as well as the contractor fees, architect fees, and all the standard fees.
The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston has an account of $2.5 million in savings for Ascension, and has officially approved our project and granted us a Line of Credit of $3.0 million. The recent Goodwill survey of our parishioners resulted in a total of $1.5 million in potential pledges. Considering all the values mentioned, Ascension's financial standing is a total of $7 million in payment power, which leaves an outstanding balance of $0.7 million.
Your continued prayer and financial support will tremendously impact the future of our mission parish. We need your prayers, official generous pledges, and hard work together for this project.
