Thanks to the generosity of our parish community, the Together We Grow Campaign is making possible our current parish expansion.
Devotional Furnishings and Art
Our Lady of Wisdom Bronze Cast
In the dedicated devotional area in the sanctuary’s northwest corner, the wise and welcoming Mary of Nazareth, mother and grandmother of all her children, rests in a place of quiet reflection. The area features warm votive candlelight in a garden-like setting with live foliage and flowing baptismal waters. This exquisite work is a bronze cast created by Sister Marie Henderson, RSM, of Detroit, MI. Mary sits on a large piece of native Missouri limestone. Next to her is an empty space – a bench of respite – for the one approaching to sit. With outstretched hands, Mary invites her visitors to light a candle, take a seat beside her, and pray for her intercession.
Liturgical Furnishings & Altar Accent Wall
While primary components of the altar and furnishings are included in the worship area expansion, some furnishings and design accents are on the Wish List. This includes a handcrafted stone wall, reflective of God’s steadfast and enduring love, that would be constructed in the sanctuary as a backdrop to the altar. Other sanctuary furnishings would include artfully crafted candle stands, credence tables and cantor stand to complement the altar, ambo, tabernacle and chair. These items are crafted of red oak harvested from renewable northern U.S. forests and beautifully accented with elements of dark emperador Spanish marble.
Holy Family Youth Area
Special Furnishings and Extras
Comfortable and inviting furnishings and technology upgrades go a long way in creating an environment that is warm and welcoming to young people. Any funds designated for parish youth areas will help furnish these areas with items designed to enhance their experiences in spiritual formation and parish involvement.
