The Story

If St Laurentius Church can be saved, it should be, it must be.The history, religion and tradition embodied in this sacred space should not be thrown to the way side because of money.  WE cannot allow our generation to be the generation that dishonored our Catholic faith.  We cannot let the dreams of our ancestors fade.  We cannot fail our children.  Saint Laurentius Church is not a factory, it is an amazing, art-filled church filled with love and tradition.  The original options presented were too burdensome on our parish. 

We could not just sit idly by.  We knew with effort, we could find a way.

The Save Saint Laurentius Church group secured an engineered bid and is working with a respected contractor.  They have planned a unique but battle-tested strategy.  The total cost of the proposal is almost $700,000.  We are working through several avenues to secure funding including individual donors, grants, events and even large donor requests but we need your help now!

Consider donating as an individual, a family, or a group of friends and we will reach the total cost of the project quickly.  Every donation is important to reaching our goal!
