St. Teresa of Calcutta Parish in Limerick celebrated the dedication of its new Ministry Center by Auxiliary Bishop John McIntyre following Mass for the vigil of the solemnity of Pentecost, June 4.
The parish community gathered with their pastor, Father Paul Brandt and Bishop McIntyre to mark another milestone in the young life of the parish, founded in 2006.
Construction of the building, which is located between the church and the education center on the parish campus, had taken more than a year because of challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Ministry Center provides professional offices for the parish staff, conference rooms and a parish hall. Rooms have been allocated to support the youth ministry programs of the parish as well the program for the parents of young children. Classrooms are located in the center to provide for the junior high students of the school.
The center’s space will also support and expand the parish’s food pantry outreach.
As St. Teresa of Calcutta Parish continues to grow, the Ministry Center provides for current and future growth.
