Repairing God's House
REPAIRING GOD'S HOUSE NEWS
Can you believe that we are 32 months into our Repairing God’s House (RGH) journey? Thirty-two months of prayer and treasure sacrifices. Your RGH team has been overwhelmed by the parish’s generosity and involvement. We believed that the church’s well being was important to you and you showed it. With our weekly prayers, God opened our hearts to ensure success.
Our next task - install outside protection to our Large Stain-glass windows located at each wing of the church (4 total). We are also inspecting the conditions of those windows that are at floor level and will make repairs as required. For those that have been keeping score to date:
Repaired/rebuilt four major outside support beams
Repaired all interior/exterior minor support beams
Removed/repaired/replaced/cleaned/reframed with a new aluminum framing system 100 of our beautiful smaller stair glass windows

Now what are our remaining challenges you ask? Simply stated, to see that all pledges are collected. Our budget and planning have always been framed by the pledges and cash donations. We are doing very well and would like to see us complete the task. We are almost there! Never cease praying. Soon you will be able to proclaim – WE DID IT!
