Our Lady of Lourdes Toledo

New Church Construction

WE BUILD Capital Campaign


Our church today is an active community comprised of over 1,000 households. Led by a dedicated pastor and strong corps of lay leaders and volunteers, there is an increasing number of ways that people of all ages can participate in the spiritual, educational, social and service ministries of our church. However, there are many shortcomings associated with our current church building.

One of the clear findings of our parish survey conducted in 2012 was that our church was inaccessible and inadequate for our needs. This was also apparent in the recent study conducted.  There was a clear mandate from our parishioners that our current church had serious deficiencies that needed to be addressed.


Because renovations to our existing church building are cost prohibitive and would not address the main issues of accessibility, the pastoral council and ἀnance council recommended that we construct a new, more accessible, more modern and inviting facility on our current church grounds.  It will be built on our current parking lot to the east of our current church.  During construction, we will continue to worship in our current church; however, the current church will be demolished upon completion of the new church.  This new church is vital to the ongoing growth and success of our parish. Building a new church allows us to take care of all of our needs at once, while simultaneously creating a new and lasting legacy for our parish and generations to come.
