CELEBRATING TEN YEARS AT DOMINOS FARMS...
Through the amazing generosity of nearly 2500 donors the FGR campus was moved from its St. Thomas Parish home to a more rural campus near Domino’s Farms, a gift of land from Mr. Tom Monaghan, ’55, and in 2003 opened to students from across the region. FGR now serves students from nearly 40 different parishes throughout the Diocese of Lansing and the Archdiocese of Detroit. And while it has been a significant blessing to open our doors to nearly 550 young women and men, this reality has posed challenges to our growing programs. The addition of our first ever HOME FIELD has been a blessing but our facilities are certainly “overworked” and it is time for even more expansion.
The community response to the school needs is the "Enriching the Mission" Campaign. To "Ensure Our Legacy..." school leaders, Bishop Earl Boyea, area Pastors and Fr. Steve Mattson, Superintendent of Catholic Schools launched an ambitious campaign to raise $7.2 million to complete the campus. The campaign priorities are: The Learning Resource Center, the Performing Arts Center and an Auxiliary Gymnasium. In addition, we plan to use nearly $1 million of the goal to eliminate existing debt from the construction of the new campus.
We are inviting alumni, past and current parents, friends and benefactors to join us in this historic effort. Many of those who contributed to the campaign to build our new campus did so to help future generations of FGR students. On their shoulders we stand, and now it is up to us to provide for the next generations of FGR students. Please join us in our efforts to respond to the needs of our students. Please know that our students, faculty and staff pray daily for our many benefactors.
