60th Diamond Anniversary Campaign
Celebrating 60 years of
Catholic Presence in Boca Raton
60 years ago a small group of women dreamed of having a Catholic church in their community. Shortly thereafter, the group of 250 families raised funds and built a new church and a school for 250 students at the present location. It was from these very humble beginnings, that the St. Joan of Arc parish family evolved.
This year, some 60 years later, St Joan of Arc Catholic Church and School has begun its year-long 60th Anniversary Celebration. St. Joan of Arc will conduct a series of events to bring the parish community together while celebrating its rich history. We kicked off the Diamond Anniversary year with our 60th Anniversary Spring Celebration which was a joyful and memorable event with close to 1,000 in attendance.
In conjunction with the celebratory events we invite you to support our Diamond Anniversary Campaign with the goal of establishing a 60th Anniversary Parish Advancement Fund. This fund will serve as support for future improvements in the Church including replacement of the aging 30 year old A/C unit in the church, new church carpet, and reupholstering of the 30 year old church pew cushions. This fund will also provide additional support for the needy through our compassionate Care Ministry and Food Pantry.
If you would like to continue the legacy of our St. Joan of Arc Parish, please contribute to the 60th Anniversary Parish Advancement Fund. Click here to download a giving form.
