The 10,000-square foot Parish Life Center/Gymnasium will include beautiful spaces for large events, a full kitchen, outdoor play areas, and a bright and modern gymnasium. More than a meeting hall, more than a gym, the building will benefit every person in our parish while also allowing us to better serve the greater good of our entire community.

We envision the new building as a place that hums nearly round the clock, every day of the week, every week of the year, with active, engaged people of all ages. The Parish Life Center/Gym will give Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish the warm, inviting space we now lack for holding large events and activities that can further unite and involve our parishioners and our community.

Not only will parishioners be able to enjoy parish-wide activities in the new meeting space. They also will be able to reserve the new meeting space for their own private events, such as wedding receptions and anniversary parties. We are now forced to turn away an average of three parish-related activities a month because there is no place to hold them.

"Every individual, child and family in the parish will be able to find something in the new building to enrich their lives. The gym, stage and gathering hall will make a big difference in the physical education, sports and social programs our school community can enjoy."

Kristin Dixon, OLG School Principal

A modern, on-site gymnasium will allow us to provide a better-rounded education to students, while helping to attract new families to OLG School. The gym also can be open to sports, recreational and social activities for teens and adults in our parish. Today, students at OLG School walk two blocks for physical education classes to the High Point Community Center, which charges us $5,000 a year in rental fees. Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) sports teams have to scramble to rent expensive space for practices, often being forced to settle for late-evening hours.

Our caring parishioners enjoy sharing God’s blessings in their lives through service to others, such as our free community meals and the annual dinner hosted and served by OLG students for seniors in the greater West Seattle community. We also look forward to new ministries and service projects that can use the Parish Life Center/Gymnasium to serve God and our community.
