Church of St. Anne: Campaign
Campaign Goal: $3.5 Million Amount Raised: $3,554,000
“Being Catholic at St. Anne’s: Our Families, Our Mission, Our Future” addressed the needs and plans for increased Meeting and Ministry space for the many activities, organizations, and ministries of the parish. In order to serve their children and parishioners better, they explored and finalized plans for the addition of a new building to serve as a meeting and ministry facility. This facility will contain more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space, be fully accessible, hold up to 250 people, and will be equipped with technology and a full-service kitchen.
