Update on St. Bruno Projects

The purpose of every Catholic parish is to be a place where we meet Our Lord. We want to make that happen at St. Bruno in every sacrament, ministry, and even our parish structures.

New Church Flooring

This was begun by Fr. Don and I am happy it will soon finish. However, any parish expense over $20,000 is always supervised by Archdiocesan officials, which can slow the process. After consulting them and local interior decorators, we selected new altar carpeting and tile flooring in the Church. Installation is underway (see photos below). Reminder: there will be no weekday Masses Tuesday, 11/8 through Friday, 11/11.

New School Fencing

Every parish school must have a perimeter fence and ensure strict guidelines for adult access. To that end we have secured a contractor to begin construction as soon as possible of a new fence. Because of its importance, the Archdiocese will expedite their project oversight. We have chosen a fence design that I believe is attractive, unobtrusive, and yet effective.

Wednesday Bingo and Tuesday Seniors Club

The Archdiocesan rules for adult access to school property are very strict, which means some changes to wonderful long standing programs that use the Hall during school hours. For example, Wednesday Night Bingo players cannot enter the Hall until 5pm. Since the Tuesday Seniors cannot enter areas during school hours from the parking lot, they decided to relocate. They just didn't see any way to make their Hall use possible from these guidelines.

Additional Security Cameras

The school already has several security cameras for school safety but there are none for parish areas, so we will be installing a few more, which requires upgrading our internet connectivity.

New Parish Software

To help our parish staff more easily record sacraments, schedule meetings, make parishioner appointments, and record your donations, we are upgrading our parish management software.

Future Projects

  • New School Playground Structures: These can also be used by other parish youth events.
  • Upgrade Hall Air Conditioning: We need to replace one or two of the systems.
  • Upgrade Widener St. Hall Access: This allows access in accord with handicap and school rules.
  • Sports Field Upgrade: We hope to bring back the grass field to full growth.
