BEYOND THE BUILDING UPDATE
Mark your Calendars for the Parish Life Complex Dedication on September 16, 2018 with Archbishop Joseph Kurtz!
Construction Began on October 9, 2017 and we are still on track for our Summer 2018 finish line!
Excitement is building as we enter into the construction phase of our Parish Life Center, a place where your family and the entire parish community can gather, learn, and serve!
You can find additional information such as Frequently Asked Questions by clicking on the above link or visiting the Beyond the Building display in the gathering space.
We want to extend an enormous thank you to all who have pledged funds to our Beyond the Building campaign so far. We have a total of $2,960,622.00 pledged to be donated to the Beyond the Building Fund. We currently have received over half of those pledged funds! This is an amazing accomplishment! But, to maintain our financial stability it is vital that those who have pledged continue to fulfill their pledges. We can do this! As we continue to trust God and remain faithful in our commitment, our vision will be achieved!
For anyone who has not already made a pledge or who wishes to increase their pledge, donations can be made online or in person. Building Fund Envelopes can be found in the Kiosk in the Gathering Space of the church. You can turn in all envelopes and checks to Cheryl Harper, Finance Administrative Assistant, at the Parish Office or in the collection baskets during Mass (MEMO: Building Fund). You can also contact Cheryl at 502-425-3940, ext. 107 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
A Message from Fr. Dave Harris (October 2017):
Dear Parish Families,
I am very pleased to announce that Lichtefeld Incorporated has been selected to be our general contractor! Pre-construction meeting will be Thursday October 5th with on-site construction beginning the week of October 9th. Our targeted completion date of summer 2018 remains solid and we are within our budget based upon the pledges that were made.
As we now begin the process of paying for construction it is extremely important that all of us remain committed to meeting our pledges. The amount of construction is based on our pledges. Please be generous! If you’ve not had the opportunity to make a pledge to this wonderful expansion of our campus and its ministries, please contact the parish office for a pledge form.

The blueprint below is our most recent design and has been officially approved as our final layout. This drawing is what will be brought to life here at St. Albert over the next several months, with our Summer 2018 completion goal still in sight. We are all very excited to officially begin construction and usher in this new chapter of life here at St. Albert the Great!

THREE BUILDINGS: ONE PLACE TO GATHER, LEARN & SERVE
The Parish Life Complex
The Parish Life Complex will consist of three buildings: Hendricks Hall, Willett Hall, and a new hospitality space called the Parish Life Center. Integrated into a single facility, the Parish Life Complex will have a shared entrance and architecture that will complement our campus identity.
Renovating existing resources is cost effective, good for the environment and expedites the building process; with a grand opening projected for the summer of 2018!
Our new Parish Life Center provides needed space and updated facilities for parishioners of all ages and will continue to do so for future generations!
