NEW: PROPERTY MAINTENANCE FUND Our monthly Property Maintenance Fund Collections are now targeted towards specific needs. As anounced at the Semi-Annual Meeting we have two pressing projects at the parish Rectory: Replacing the Front Door and sidelights (Original Doors from the 1890's) and the Garage overhead doors. The total cost is approximately $5500. ($4000 for Front Door and $1500 for the garage doors). Please keep this in mind when making your monthly property maintenance fund donation. The August Collection netted $448.00. We are pleased to announce that we have received an anonymous donation of $2100 and an additional $2166.00 in memory of Lawrence Beck and Mildred Paproski. Additional donations of any amount will gratefully be accepted. We are most grateful to our parishioners for all their efforts in maintaining and improving our Church properties over the years. How blessed we are to have such a beautiful parish complex which is truly our little slice of Paradise, the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. AS OF 9/09/18 TOTAL = $4,714.00.00, GOAL = $5500. WE ARE ALMOST THERE - only $784 to go! WILL YOU HELP US REACH OUR GOAL?
PARISH SURVEY - All parishioners have received a copy of our parish survey. As of this writing only 9 people have returned the form. Perhaps this seems like a daunting task as the form is several pages long. Feel free to fill out those areas that are applicable or for which you feel strongly about. It is to be completed by all parishioners, including youth. Please place the completed forms in the metal collection box on the candle desk or mail them into the Church by next Sunday.
