Church Mortgage Burning Celebration
We have a great reason to celebrate after all Masses the weekend of October 21st and 22nd!
Grab your snacks and drinks in the narthex and gather outside the church front doors with Fr. Jim as we hold a church mortgage burning ceremony!
In 1999, the Parish Pastoral Council authorized a Building Committee to assess the future needs of the parish. Later that year the committee presented the parish with a plan for a permanent church and a new parish hall building. The Archdiocese of Atlanta gave its blessing, and the fundraising began.
After a lot of fits and starts, a master plan was developed, our loan with the Archdiocese was initiated and approval was granted by the DeKalb County Commission. The parish broke ground in 2003 and began construction.
The new church was dedicated on November 4, 2005, by the newly assigned Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory, S.L.D. In addition to the new church, the parish gained a Parish Preschool, Youth Room, and Moylan Hall.
On October 3, 2023 the last payment was made on the latest refinanced church loan and our church debt has finally been extinguished! Thank you to everyone who contributed.
