""It really does feel good," Johnson says. "I know it's something that the people here at St. Mary's have been hoping and praying for for a long time, and so I'm really happy for them most of all."
"All the support we've gotten is tremendous," Says father Justin Monaghan of St. Mary's. "This is just an exciting day, to be able to announce where we are and show drawings from the architects."
Father Monaghan says the church hopes to begin rebuilding on the new site by the summer of 2013. The project will take two years to complete.
