(Beaver Dam) Officials with St. Katharine Drexel Parish in Beaver Dam shared their expansion plans with us yesterday on WBEV’s Community Comment. Father Mike Erwin says the “Building From Our Belief” capital campaign aims to raise funds to improve accessibility, enhance worship space and expand their facilities on South Spring Street. The fundraising drive has a minimum goal of $2-million dollars and an ultimate goal of $3-million dollars, which would allow the project to be completed without debt. In addition to handicap accessibility, the worship space which would see updated pews, lighting, new carpet, fresh paint, an audio/video upgrade and an enhanced choir area. The general gathering area would be increased in size creating a multi-purpose space, meeting rooms and storage. The campaign would also target exterior repairs to bricks and mortar, the steeple and the parking lot.
