Growing with Denton
St. David's has truly been blessed with an enthusiastic and growing parish body. As we make room for our growing congregation, we want to keep you informed about our building process and what you can expect. Recognizing all the construction currently taking place around us, we want to ensure that this project not only maintains the beauty of our current facilities, but that we also remain a neighborhood parish in the process. We are excited to be able to welcome new members and provide additional services to our community—not just today, but for many years to come.
What to Expect
Demolition and site preparation has already begun, and is slated to be complete in early July. This phase of our building project includes significant asbestos abatement. All preliminary City approvals are in place. We are also currently soliciting bids for construction, along with the remaining City approvals.
Groundbreaking is schedule for the first week of September.
Our targeted completion date is August 2022. We will have a dedication liturgy and celebration (open to the public) in September 2022.
One of St. David's greatest assets is our location, nestled in a vibrant and warm community in central Denton. It's imperative to us that throughout this building project (and beyond) we continue to be the good neighbor we've always been, and a contributing member of this community. To that end, we have been intentional in designing a neighborhood-scale building. We will be planting more quality trees, providing more green space, and providing all of our parking on our own property (eliminating the need for street parking at major events).
We also look forward to having more space available for community needs, such as neighborhood meetings and events. Finally, as we grow, we will have more capacity for mission work in our community, above and beyond what we are already doing.
During construction, we'll work with our contractor to:
Protect our quality trees
Keep the truck trips to a minimum
Work only within the hours allowed under Denton's noise ordinance
Keep our trash and equipment on our site
And we'll always be open and available to hear about any concerns or issues that might arise. We are excited to grow together with you in this community!
