Father Murphy, Lori Trout (SSM and SKD Business Manager) and I met with the Diocesan Building Commission on October 28, 2019. The purpose of the meeting was to formally review our plan to build a permanent church (Phase I), gain feedback, and seek approval to move forward for the next step in the Diocesan planning and construction process. Senior clerical and lay members of the Diocese attended, along with external advisors. The meeting was extremely positive and the support for our project is strong.
