Building Fund

The size of our current building is limiting the number of students we can reach.

There are an estimated 7,000 Catholic students enrolled at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

We can only fit 100 people into the multi-purpose room we use for Sunday Mass.

 

Students who participate in campus ministry are 82% more likely to attend Mass after they graduate.*

Students are being left behind.

Our new building will have a 285 seat chapel.  That is nearly three times larger than our current worship space.

 

The campaign goal is $6 million, and the building and grounds will be a total of 13,508 square feet.  That breaks down to about $425 per square foot.

AS OF JANUARY 21, 2014, WE HAVE OVER $747,595.02 IN CASH!  THAT IS OVER 1,759 SQUARE FEET!

Monthly payments over the course of one year come out to $36 ($36.79 if paying through PayPal).

Is this a commitment you can make?
