A pair of north Tulsa churches are looking to build a new soccer complex for the community.

Catholic churches St. Augustine and St. Monica are working to raise money to fund the project for a new soccer complex.

Terry McGee, a builder and member of the church, came up with the idea to also add a Black Catholic history museum that would overlook the complex.

“Father wanted to build a soccer complex. I thought of a way that in addition to building the soccer complex the history center would help support the whole campus itself,” said McGee.

Now they’re looking to engage the community with town halls to get involved. If they’re able to get the funds, McGee says it could be done ahead of next summer. Initial estimates are that the soccer complex would cost just under $100,000 to build.

“All of it has to be integrated in a way that not only does the parish see how it’s integrated,” said McGee. “The community has to see it, that's really the key,”

NewsChannel 8 reached out to St. Augustine’s priest on their hopes for the funding but did not get a response.
