Chapel improvements underway…

Since starting as director, many have approached me and offered to help improve our beautiful chapel. Guided by these suggestions, I have put together a Chapel Improvement Plan, which includes replacing the current binds with high quality 4″ louver shutters, replacing the monstrance, adding statues of Mary and Joseph on the walls adjacent to the crucifix, and updating some of the other liturgical items. The cost would be around $10,000. The good news is over $5,000 has already been raised. I need your help to raise the balance. To make a donation, please click the following link:

I would also welcome any assistance you might want to provide in either purchasing or locating these items from various sources. Through your support, you will enhance the prayer experience of the thousands of people that come to the center each year, and help us fulfill our mission of being a place of evangelization and renewal.

Thank you for all of your generosity and support. Blessings on your work and ministry!

Director, Catholic Conference Center
