Jesus, Whom God called “My beloved Son,” is also the “servant” of whom Isaiah speaks in the first reading. We who are baptized in Christ must follow His example and use our time and resources in the service of God and neighbor.
Future Facility Needs
In August 2017, Fr. Cao established a Strategic Facilities Planning Committee to study the facility needs of the parish. The study team was comprised of Fr. Cao, Shawn Swisher, Business Manager, and parishioners Fran Grooters, Tony Fink, Kent Bosch, Tom Casey, Scott and Dot Dorman, Mary Kay Watry, Curtis Ottinger, and Stan Gengler.
The mission was to study and define facility needs of the parish. The committee conducted an in-pew survey in November 2017 soliciting input from parishioners. Over 200 surveys were submitted with parishioners rating facility components unacceptable, inadequate, adequate and superior. The highest rated component was OLM’s worship space and the lowest rated component was the kitchen.
The committee discussed desired values to improve and nourish spiritual, educational, community and other needs of the parish. Some of those values were health and safety, facility integrity, investments for future needs, and meeting facility needs for the next 20 to 25 years.
Facility inspections were done by professionals to assess the current condition of parish facilities. Following these inspections, subcommittees were created to further investigate areas defined as concerns by the building inspectors. It soon became very apparent that the committee needed professional assistance to help define facility needs of the parish.
Architects were solicited and interviewed and Integrated Design Group from Arvada was engaged to assist the committee in defining facility needs of the parish. Integrated Design Group has extensive experience working with Catholic parishes. Their resume included many Catholic churches and are also endorsed by the archdiocese.
Integrated Design Group has prepared conceptual plans for the future needs of the parish. These plans include 4 areas that are in need of improvement. Those areas are the church roof, kitchen, church exterior, and rectory. Those plans were submitted to the Archdiocese of Denver an were approved to continue fulfillment.
After each mass on the second weekend of January, the facilities committee will host an open house in the downstairs meeting room to provide greater detail about the desired planned improvement to OLM facilities. We encourage you to learn more about these needs and plans for the future. Future tasks will be a capital campaign to fund the needs, moving the plans from conceptual ideas to defined plans, and eventually implementing the plans into actual construction projects. Please make every effort to attend the informative sessions after mass on either
January 12 & 13.
