Welcome to our Vision2020 webpage with the most current information and latest developments on our parish renovation projects. Below are links to the HISTORY of project, the FUTURE of our renovations and how to PLEDGE. We hope you find this informative and exciting. Please pray that the Holy Spirit continues to bestow God’s wisdom, grace and patience on our project leaders as they continue to work in Christ’s name, bringing our community together as a people united in faith and mission.
Keep an eye on this spot. We will continue to update with videos of progress as the project continues. Pray for lots of good weather and for the health of all those involved in this process.
Stained Glass Windows
The west façade of our renovated church will be highlighted by nine tall antique stained-glass windows. The windows were originally installed in St. Brigid Catholic Church in Baltimore, which closed in 2019. St. Brigid opened in 1858 in the Canton neighborhood to serve immigrants from Ireland. Its first resident pastor was newly ordained Father James Gibbons, who would go on to become the ninth archbishop of Baltimore. The windows were made by the famous Franz Mayer Studios in Munich, Germany.
On May 28th of 2021, the windows were removed from St. Brigid and transported to Middletown, Virginia, where restoration craftsmen will make any necessary repairs and store the windows until we are ready for them to be installed in our new spaces. View them all in the slideshow below.
It has been over fifty years since the groundbreaking of our present Church and school. Our worship space was originally intended to be the school auditorium. Over the years, our facilities have been expanded to include two additions to the school, a Pastoral Center with a daily Mass Chapel, a gym and multipurpose rooms. However, we are still worshipping in the auditorium.
Now is our time. We can make an investment in our parish that will carry us forward easily for the next fifty years. Personally, I want to thank you for your generosity and support to our parish. I am asking each family to please prayerfully consider a sacrificial gift to the Vision 2020 campaign at a level proportionate to their capability.
When considering my request, please remember how much your gift will mean to our entire parish community. Please join with me in embarking on this exciting Vision 2020 campaign.
