The charge of the Development Committee is to identify goals and align time, talent, and treasure for the continued spiritual growth of the people of St. Mary Parish.

To fulfill this mission, the Development Committee:

  • Identifies capital goals for the parish
  • Presents stated goals and obtains commitment
  • Assesses new goals against stated goals

“Each person should give what  s/he has decided in his/her heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
—2 Corinthians 9:7

Parishioners’ gifts, through the annual appeal, allowed this committee to raise the capital needed to complete the upgrades to meet the fire safety code. As necessary projects are identified throughout the parish, this ministry works in tandem with other ministries, particularly the Buildings and Grounds Ministry to address these concerns.
