THE PLAN: The creation of a center for parish, school, and community needs will benefit all parishioners in Jackson County, residents, and visitors to our area. In late 2014, construction began at Marquette Catholic as a new high school was raised - but planning began long before. Generous individual donors have allowed the completion of Phase 1 and 2 which included the addition of a gravel parking lot and the removal of the old St. Joseph middle school building. Now, we ask for community support - prayerfully and financially - so that Phase 3 may become a reality.
THE PLAN CONTINUED: The proposed addition will connect the elementary school with the high school and middle school at Marquette and add a much needed community space. 5th Street will be replaced by a practice gymnasium, cafeteria, and reception hall and will be named after Father Kruse. The community center will house youth groups, card parties, funeral dinners, sacrament preparations, among other activities. Double security doors will create a safe environment for our children now and into the future.
