Take a Closer Look At St. Charles
St. Charles Borromeo Church continues to power through the design process this month, with the groundbreaking in sight for Summer.
The St. Charles Building Committee gathered on Thursday, March 28 for an update from the project’s architect at Radian Design, Mark Russell, and the construction project manager at S.C. Anderson, Paul Burzych.
The committee of parishioners, diocesan consultants, and professional consultants continues this month to examine value engineering opportunities in key expense areas such as HVAC, Electrical, and site plan. To date, the committee has been able to create estimated cost savings without sacrificing the scope and capacity that was originally proposed for the Church.
The committee's main goal this month is to have the project in plan check with the City of Visalia by April 30. The committee will continue to review the costs of the project and the effects of inflation as the project progresses.
The Capital Campaign team will be presenting fly through virtual renderings of the Church in June and will be reaching out to parishioners with a catalog of items to be sponsored.
Please be sure to view the presentation boards at the vestibules and parish halls at all of our church sites beginning April 7th. Brochures will also be available for you to take home and share with your family and friends.
We are blessed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit as we move forward with this project. We are grateful to the Lord for providing us with the Wisdom, Understanding, Knowledge, Counsel, Fortitude and Piety that is needed as we build this Church for His Kingdom.
Please continue to keep this project and people involved in your prayers as the work continues.
Upcoming Second Collection
The weekend of April 13-14, a second collection will be taken at all Masses. The monthly collection goes toward offsetting the debt being incurred by the building of our new St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church located at the corner of Caldwell and Akers in Visalia. Your contributions ensure our parish is able to sustain and support the blessed growth of our parish in the coming years.
