It has been six months since we officially broke ground in June, 2019, and many of our parishioners have been inquiring about the status of our new church. As you can imagine, with a project of this size, there are many details that have needed to be worked out in the design and planning phases. As of January 24th, the architectural design is 90% complete. We have received our parking variance, the civil permit from St. Johns River Water Management District and are currently waiting for the building permit from the City of Jacksonville Beach. As many of you may know, it is a meticulous and slow process.
The demolition permit for the Thrift Store is in process with a target of seeing some action on site towards the end of March. It is our hope that construction will begin in April and continue through the early summer of 2021.
We thank everyone for their continued interest, patience, generosity and prayers.
