Background Statement, Feasibility Study

crucifix A message from our Pastor, Fr. Pat:
I am excited to share with you exciting developments regarding the future of St. Paul Parish and our Background Statement!
   For almost 175 years, the Catholic Community of St. Paul has worshipped and followed the Gospel of Jesus Christ. From a village of 60 families, our Parish has grown to over 4,500 members and 1,800 families. With vibrant Parish ministries and an excellent school, our Parish is strong—and the time has come to grow again.
   In order to support our potential growth as a Parish and to sustain the faith that inspired our ancestors since 1844, we recognize that our facilities are in need of $5 million of substantial repairs, updating of infrastructure, and an additional $7 million expansion of our physical spaces. Therefore, as we prepare to celebrate our 175th year as a community of faith, we are embarking on a potential 12.5 million campaign focused on building and renovating the church, Parish Hall, school, and rectory, while supporting the Alton Deanery Senior Living Campaign. Please read our background statement for full details. Thank you!
