Capital Campaign Information
Truth, beauty and goodness are alive and well at Assumption Catholic Church. Long a cornerstone of the Catholic community in Jacksonville, Assumption has come a long way over the past 110 years – growing from a small group of 13 families to a thriving parish of more than 1,000 households. Our ministries are widespread and committed to good works, and service to God and community is woven throughout all we do. Our school – our largest ministry – and our Early Learning Center are bustling hubs of academics and development. Our parish life center provides us with space for fellowship and family.
Our sanctuary – the church building itself – is the beating heart of our parish. So much more than a mere building, this updated Mission Style church has held us as we’ve worshipped, celebrated and mourned. We’ve gathered in its pews to find peace and serenity, answers and absolution. At 70 years old, our church building has served us well for a long time, but it’s showing the effects of decades of loving use.
We have discussed, debated and prayed over the needs of our church, and our leaders have determined that a capital campaign is necessary to address our needs and to ensure that Assumption thrives far into the future – for our children and their children and so on. When completed, these projects will make our church safer and more efficient, and they will enhance the spirituality and look of our church, hopefully inspiring and encouraging us to deepen our faith and spiritual lives.
We have all of the information including the Fact Sheet breaking down the projects and anticipated costs, frequently asked questions with answers, and more on our capital campaign webpage linked below.
