I grew up in a historical town in which we did everything possible to preserve buildings. Consequently, my hope was that we could preserve our present church building and also add nice bathrooms and gathering space to the building. The Archdiocese connected me with a female architect who loves old masonry buildings and has spent much of her adult life saving older buildings.

In order to get a clearer idea on how to preserve our church building, she encourage our Building and Maintenance committee to hire an engineering firm to take a look at our church building. Unfortunately, the engineer’s report uncovered some very serious concerns with the structure of the church building. You can read this entire report by Clinking below. As you may remember, our parish hired an another engineer firm (Horner & Shifrin) in 2012 to look at the structural integrity of our church building. Their report also highlighted some serious concerns for our church building. Like the recent engineer report, you can also read it below.  Because of these two engineer reports, it has become obvious to me and all members of the building committee and the Archdiocese that our parish needs a new church building in order

to carry out the mission God has set before us.

Please take the time to read closely both reports below. I was personally devastated when I read the second report, but then I reminded myself, “not my will but Your Will be done.” This present church building has served our parish extremely well for over 120 years. This building has witness thousands of Baptisms, Confirmations, Marriages, Confessions, and people coming up to receive Jesus in the Holy Sacrament of the Mass. It will be very emotional to leave that building. Please turn to God in gratitude in your prayers for giving us such a wonderful church building and pray to God for guidance as we plan for a new Spiritual home for Immaculate Conception.

Fr. Huber
