After seven years of fundraising and nine years of planning, our two- and-a-half-level subterranean parking structure, Caruso Community Center, Grand Pavilion, and Simon Child and Student Center are now complete. The project’s first phase commenced January 15, 2012 in a formal groundbreaking ceremony and was formally opened on November 3, 2013 in a blessing and dedication ceremony with Archbishop José Gomez.
On October 1, 2014, we completed the second phase of construction by transforming our parking lot and schoolyard into the Marilyn Hawley Hilton Schoolyard. We also renovated the upper level of our gymnasium and have plans to upgrade the lower gymnasium and renovate existing facilities on our campus in the next two years.
With the support of over 2,600 donors, we are grateful to all who gave so generously to make this vision a reality. We continue to rely on our pledge payments through 2018 to pay the remaining $2.5 million owed on the project (as of June 2015). We are so blessed to have the facilities and renovations we need to continue the work of our ministries, as we help those in need in our community and throughout the world.
You can make a one-time gift or set up a recurring gift using a credit or debit card to make a gift or a pledge payment. If you have any questions about your pledge balance, contact Anne Davidson at or (310) 566-1552.
