Soon after arriving to Ascension Parish in 2019, Fr. Hao formed the Parish Buildings & Grounds Committee. This dedicated committee was tasked with advising the pastor on the maintenance and upkeep of parish buildings and grounds.  The committee prioritizes the present and future needs of the facilities as part of the budget and identifies any situations which require immediate action.  The committee also establishes a master site plan with a timeline for actions (upgrading, replacement, renovation, etc.) and estimated funds.

The first major project was the redwoods thinning and trimming in September 2019, which eliminated dried branches and reduced the overall stress on the trunk.

Members of the Parish Buildings & Grounds Committee:
Ron Schoengold (chair), Chuck Schoppe, Harry Stice, Anthony Stolz, Jerry Streb.
