"Restoration of These Old Brick Walls” Campaign

This project aims to repair and restore the bricks on our historic building, which sustained considerable damage from a leak in the old roof.  The roof was replaced in 2012.  The first phase of construction on the brick restoration took place in the summer of 2015 and cost $100,000.  Phase II of the restoration will be integrated into the parish’s efforts to upgrade the entire campus.  The parish is working in cooperation with the School Board’s building committee to set goals and timelines for the project.  Click here to give to the "Restoration of These Old Brick Walls" Campaign.
