Anonymous Parishioner Donates $100,000 for New Parish Multipurpose Facility in Brunswick

Generous Donor Also Offers New Incentive Challenge

BRUNSWICK---As work continues on the new St. John the Baptist multipurpose facility in Brunswick, the excitement grows with the completion of each phase of construction (seven recent pictures of construction progress below).

Over $3.8 million of the $4.7 million campaign goal has been donated thanks to the generosity of parishioners, school families, businesses, and community members who understand the importance of having the facility in Brunswick. 

That giving continues in a variety of ways, including a new donation and incentive challenge.

“A generous donor has given us $100,000,” said Jim Baskerville, general chair of the steering committee overseeing the campaign. “The donor, who prefers to remain anonymous, has also challenged the community with a great incentive. If we can bring in $300,000 in new donations, the donor will contribute another $100,000!”  

The new multipurpose facility is being built by Ouellet Construction adjacent to St. John’s Catholic School and across the parking lot from St. John the Baptist Church on Pleasant Street. It will include an open space that will be used as an auditorium, cafeteria, and gymnasium, as well as a fully-equipped kitchen, locker rooms, a meeting room, a music room, and an adoration chapel, located in the corner of the complex, near the street. In all, the complex encompasses more than 15,000 square feet and will be rented out to community organizations in addition to parish and school use.

“The donor gift to essentially add 33% to the next $300,000 of new donations has really created some new momentum towards reaching the final goal,” said Fr. Thomas Murphy, pastor of All Saints Parish of which the church and school are a part. “This push is another opportunity for parishioners and community members who perhaps have not donated to help finish this facility that will benefit the Midcoast region, not just our parish.”

“The town recreation center, a Knights of Columbus hall, and our parish hall are now unavailable due to being demolished, sold, and restricted for occupancy, respectively,” said Baskerville. “There is an appreciation for how important having a facility like this truly is.”

“I don’t think people realize how important this structure is going to be to the fabric of Brunswick,” said Mike Ouellet, president of Ouellet Construction, at a June event that showcased the progress of construction. “This multipurpose facility is not just a gymnasium for St. John’s, it’s a multipurpose facility for this community, and once people step inside this, and see it finished, and can see tangibly as to what it can provide, there will be waiting lists of people waiting to use this facility.”
