The Committee consists of 10-12 members of the parish who work to access the brick and mortar issues of the parish. They seek estimates on various projects, and prioritize the repair and replacement of the buildings and grounds of the parish. The committee meets six to seven times a year. They organize work parties to do the work that can be done by volunteers.
