Capital Campaign Phase I & II

Are you excited? You should be!

60 years after the dedication of Our Lady of the Assumption Church, our church and school received major renovations that beautified and modernized our worship and educational spaces as well improving their functionality for all. Please see below for a detailed listing of Phase 1 Achievements. We thank those of you who helped us prove that even a poor economy cannot prevent a strong group of forward-thinking supporters who made the impossible, possible and believed that our Catholic way of life must be preserved now and for future generations of Catholics.

But, we are far from finished.

Our Lady of the Assumption has a vibrant parish campus that supports ministries, academic and athletic endeavors. Our current needs are outpacing our ability to provide space for them to grow. But, we have a plan to provide for what is required.

Queue Phase 2.

From the beginning, our Capital Campaign was designed as a phased approach. Phase 1 addressed our current needs and infrastructure. Phase 2 directs our efforts on the completion of a Parish Hall that will allow Our Lady of the Assumption to host diocesan, parish, academic, athletic and secular events that the space available with our current hall is woefully inadequate to provide. Imagine attending one of our community-building dinners, or an adult faith formation program, or a sporting event in a venue that is designed to meet our current needs and not the needs of the generations that preceded us. In addition, it will provide for more parking, remodeling our current Parish Hall to provide for a Pre-Kindergarten and after school program as well as additional meeting and office spaces.

We can’t do it alone. We need you!

You proved that, as a faith family, we can come together to build the community of God in Carmichael. Let’s continue to build our bond with our neighbors and leave a legacy that will benefit our families now and for future generations.
