Building the Future Together

Our Building Together Campaign


In an effort to fulfill our mission of building a church of missionary disciples, St Clare of Assisi, in partnership with our Diocese of Phoenix, began our Building the Future TOGETHER Capital Campaign in the fall of 2019. With a victory goal of $6.5 million, the campaign was established to fund a Parish Activity Center and expand the current parking lot. We are about to embark on phase 1 of the initiative.

Upon this momentum, the Campaign Committee, along with Fr. Hans and the staff are asking our families to prayerfully consider making a pledge to the campaign. Every gift is valuable, by the combined efforts of our community, we will be able to bring our project to fruition. Pledges help us better understand our potential budget for the project.

Campaign Highlights


Campaign Prayer

Eternal Father, we ask you, through your Beloved Son, and the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe to pour forth your Holy Spirit upon our combined campaign.

May the light of Christ within each of us shine forth as a beacon of hope drawing all of us closer to You and Your Church.

Consecrate us in truth and, according to your will, accomplish your plans in us to radiate the love and mercy of Jesus, as exemplified by tow great saints who visited our diocese, Saint John Paul II and Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta.

Saint Joseph, pray for us.

Saint Clare of Assisi, pray for us.
