Expansion and remodeling project announced at St. Mary's


A capital campaign is underway to add on and renovate St. Mary School and also add a Parish Center. See more drawings in this week's Humboldt Independent.

St. Mary’s Parish and School in Humboldt has announced an expansion and remodeling project.
Father Dan Guenther said they have launched “Ignite the Faith: A Campaign for St. Mary’s Parish and School.” The capital campaign goal is to raise $3.5 million. Launched in December, the Ignite the Faith Capital Campaign already has $1.3 million committed to the project.
“As St. Mary’s Parish and School grows and evolves, there is a need for updated space and additional space. More than 35 years ago was the last capital campaign for St. Mary’s when funds were raised for the current school. The time is right and the time is now for St. Mary’s to invest in our facilities and our parish and school families,” Father Guenther said.
