The primary responsibility of the Facilities Department staff is to to ensure, year-round, the cleanliness and safety of the Diocesan offices and the Terra Sancta Retreat Center and grounds.

The Facilities Department is involved in the design, maintenance, construction, and renovation of parishes and centers in the Rapid City Diocese. In addition, the department assists with safety issues at the parish by providing ongoing Risk Management Surveys to help identify potential hazards and deficiencies.

The department works in conjunction with architects and engineers in advising and providing these services to pastors and administrators and acts as advisors to the parishes and liaisons between the Pastor and outside contractors, inspectors and engineers. We also provide recommendations to the parishes for contractors in their area.
