Repairing God's House News
Congratulations to those who have participated in the Repairing God’s House (RGH) journey. With prayers before each mass and sacrifices of treasure made, your RGH team anticipates completing all the tasks outlined in our original RGH brochure and pledge cards.
We are officially 6 months from completing the RGH three (3) year period. It’s been a very long trip but one worth taking. We are so very proud of all that YOU accomplished. From prayers to treasure your team has been able to stay out of debt and accomplish all that we intended. Here is a list of things we said had to be done to enable our house to remain safe for worship:
Replaced and repaired the major exterior support beams
Removed, replaced, installed aluminum frame system for stain glass windows
Repaired areas of roof frame
Replaced all kneeler pads
Replaced the church sound system
Repaired or replaced the minor interior support beams
Repaired all flat roofs over the entries to the church
Repainted all trim and eve areas
Replaced all HVAC and air handler units (5 ea)
We have been approached by the church administration and asked if RGH would consider using anticipated excess funds to help pay for repaving the Church parking lot? RGH’s response was that we would need to speak to our parishioners and seek approval. Here’s what your team’s thoughts are on this matter. There are still many donations still outstanding. But anticipating that all commitments will be made we would like to do put forth two additional tasks;
Create a restricted fund in reserve to help pay for any CHURCH emergencies and,
Approve the use of the remaining money to help pay for parking lot repairs / resurfacing.
Here’s what we need from you. If you disagree with the team’s approach please
