As our community is increasingly growing, we are in need of a bigger space to accommodate our Catholic students and staff at UNLV!
The current plan is for a 340 seat, 5,000 square foot church in which we will celebrate the heart of our worship as Catholics: the Mass. This will be significantly larger than our current facility that only seats 85 people comfortably. The church will have some new decorative accessories including a new altar, lectern, and statues. The new facility will also include a narthex that will sit in the Brussels Street side of our center. It will allow us to have outdoor gatherings and also serve as another spot on our grounds for students to study, eat, or hang out. In addition, we will have a brand new bell tower that will serve as a symbol that the Church is present on campus and is here to serve students of UNLV.
Our plan for this church has been wholeheartedly approved by Bishop George Leo Thomas of the Catholic Diocese of Las Vegas. With the help of our community and the generosity of our benefactors, our students (both Catholic and non-Catholic alike) will have a sacred place to pray, meditate, and build community. The cost of this project is estimated to be $2.5 million and we have currently raised over $1.4 million! We are half way there!
