St. Thomas Aquinas Canadian Martyrs Parish and Saint Mary’s University are pleased to announce an agreement regarding the purchase and sale of the Canadian Martyrs Church property, located on Inglis Street.
In making the announcement today, Father Mark Cherry, Pastor, said, “The sale accomplishes the goals of the Transition Team and will benefit the entire Parish. We are now able to move forward with our future redesign and development of our St. Thomas Aquinas site that will greatly enhance our services to parishioners and enable us to more effectively carry out our broader spiritual mission.”
Pending the normal conditions and approvals being satisfied, it is anticipated Saint Mary's University will take possession of the land and buildings by Spring, 2017.
Dr. Rob Summerby-Murray, President and Vice-Chancellor of Saint Mary’s University, noted, “The acquisition of the property recognizes the shared history of our two institutions, University and Archdiocese. The property will complete Saint Mary’s University’s presence as “the world within one city block.”
St. Thomas Aquinas Canadian Martyrs Parish and Saint Mary’s University are delighted to have reached this important milestone.
