First Church Expansion photo gallery shows demolition work in progress

Parishioner/Parish Photographer Rob Preston provided some great photos that show the Church Expansion Project in full swing. The demolition and clearing out of the old church building can be clearly seen, as crews ready the building for its addition. We'll post more photos throughout the project as they are available.

Church Expansion Gallery One

Reserve your portrait session for our NEW Parish Directory

Our parish is partnering with Lifetouch to create a new Parish Directory featuring professional portraits of our parishioners.

Lifetouch is providing the directory at no cost to our church, and every family photographed will receive a complimentary directory and an 8x10 portrait. You can sign-up for your portrait online at the Lifetouch website or stop at the sign-up station in the Parish Center before or after Mass on the weekends of September 16-17 and 23-24.

A New Directory...

  • Preserves this special time in the life our church
  • Becomes a lasting record of our current membership
  • Helps us connect faces with names
