Building Fund

We have introduced the Designated Donation part of our campaign. Major areas of the project have pre-set minimums which individuals, families or even a few families working together can donate. These donors, and the loved ones they are remembering, will be honored with a plaque which will be in keeping with the dignity of the project and church. Information about Designated Donations is available today in the parish hall and on our website.



BUILDING RENOVATION AND EXPANSION

In answer to requests from those at the annual meeting, a new flyer has been printed showing an overview of the project, its costs and funding. These were put in the mail this past week and an additional copy is enclosed with this bulletin so that you may pass it on to family and friends who are interested in our building campaign. Information about Designated Donations can be found in the parish hall.



New Building Renovation Design

The Parish Council and Building Committee are pleased to share the updated sketches for our renovation and expansion project.

We are grateful for our generous donors. We are now offering everyone the opportunity to contribute a dedicated donation. If you and your family (or several) families are moved to dedicate a portion of this project in honor or memory of a loved one, please click here for the details.

Your prayers and support are much appreciated.
