This is the latest rendering of the St. Rose Gathering Space
Creating a Bright, Beautiful, Liturgical and Functional Gathering Space
In the next few months, construction will begin on the new entrance of our main church. The open steel girders protruding from the pavement will be transformed into a beautiful, enclosed Gathering Space. This long-awaited addition will serve many needs for the St. Rose of Lima community.
This space will witness the gathering of Communion and Confirmation children; wedding parties and funeral processions; Feast Day preparations and Holy Day rites. Friends and families will meet and greet, buy food certificates and sign up for fund-raisers and outreach activities. Access to the Woodlands Room via a covered Connector Walkway guarantees a warm and dry walk for coffee and donuts.
While funds for the basic structure are in place, a few important finishes still need to be purchased to ensure our parishioners and guests are welcomed into a lovely and holy environment. An environment designed to transition us from the external busyness of daily life to the internal peacefulness of Holy Mass.
Your donations are requested to complete our Gathering Space interior with the items described below.
Ushers need their closet updated and two Family Bathrooms will need new fixtures. An Information Center will be designed to highlight our many Faith Ministries. This area will need display units and storage cabinets. Help provide live audio and video of the Mass to those seated in the Gathering Space. Fund a comfortable Rest Area with soft seating and lights. A few donations will be needed to create a Devotional Area with votive lights for personal intentions and quiet prayer.
Most importantly, this space will be the face of the St. Rose community; a place where beautiful Liturgical Art and images will provide a gracious welcome to all who enter.
