As was the case back in the Book of Exodus, not all the Jews that left Egypt made it to the Promised Land,
such is the story of our journey to our new home.
These photographs are dedicated to all of our St. Faustina Parish Family
who are watching from their current home in God’s Heavenly Kingdom.

Week of August 12:

This week we take a tour of the right side of the new church building…the side where the office space, classrooms, warming kitchen, hospitality room, and conference room will be located.  As you walk in the front, you will be greeted by the receptionist who will buzz you in from the secure door on your right.  However, if you look directly down the hallway, you will be staring at the Divine Mercy Chapel, or the Grotto of Mercy.  To the right of the Grotto is a long hallway.  Immediately on the right is the fully-functional warming kitchen.  To you left you will see classrooms, the hospitality room and the room for Father John and Deacon John (there is no photo of that room in this series).  Around the corner, after the door leading to the outside, which faces the entrance to the property, is Father Ramon’s office.  Down the hall from that are offices and a conference room.  Offices, which will be on the entrance side of the building, have yet to be constructed.  You will also notice, in our final photo, that the application of the drywall, or sheetrock, has started.  On the outside, coats of sealant continue to be applied.

Week of August 5:

As you walk in the front entrance you quickly realize how many different things that are happening all at the same time.  The duct work for the air/heat unit, the sprinkler system, the insulation, the steel that is being used to frame the interior, and the sheetrock (or drywall), are all in various stages of progress and are all moving along quickly.

Week of July 31:
As we end the month of July, the back offices (on the wall that faces Route 27), are starting to take shape.  You can see the depth on the offices that will be located on the backside of the building, the side that faces US Route 27.  You can also see that the doors for the building have been delivered as has some of the dry wall.

Week of July 18 – 24:
We have WINDOWS! And Three-Quarters of a Roof!  The roof on the Route 27 side of our new church building was completed and, on the entrance side, is half done. Inside work continues on the air conditioning/heating system, and framing has started for the office space.

 The first two photos in this series, taken July 13, show the outline of the window that will be behind the altar and face the congregation. The rest of the series shows the progress of the roof, both inside and outside the building, as well as the duct work.

The first section of the roof’s crossbeams and insulation took place on July 9.  These photos show what is happening outside the building as well as inside.  Also, the installation of the duct work progressed.

On Sunday, February 13, a parish-wide Groundbreaking Celebration was held at our Glenbrook Commons location.  Not one, BUT TWO, cakes…now that is a celebration!…were shared by our parishioners along with stories and memories of our journey together.  Kathy Murphy, one of our founding parishioners, passed out little celebration jars that contained dirt, which had been blessed by Bishop Noonan, from the January 9 event.

At 3:00 pm on Sunday, January 9, Bishop John Noonan came to our property to officially bless and turn the first shovels of dirt at the long-waited groundbreaking ceremony. Our own Deacon John Broehl led the prayer session prior to the shovels hitting the ground. “What a glorious day, one that this parish has been waiting for a long time. Today we honor Jesus Christ. Now, are we ready to shovel some dirt and get to work?! But first, let’s pray.” — Bishop John Noonan

After waiting more than 16 years, the orange trees that previously sat on our property were cleared and on January 9, 2022, the landscaping machinery began the task of cutting the very tall grass and excavating the land. The hand-made sign that proclaims, “Future Home of St. Faustina Roman Catholic Church” had been replaced several times over the years. That old, tattered and torn sign, was FINALLY replaced by the professional sign that told all who passed by 15551 N Boggy Marsh Road that our dreams and prayers were going to become reality.
