Church Roof Repair Fund: Goal $170,000!
The good news is that one parishioner has decided to support us with a matching gift of our donations, one dollar for each dollar donated by parishioners, up to $30,000. There is more good news! Our Knights of Columbus also want to support us and encourage us with a matching gift.
You probably heard me sharing with you the big problem we have with the roof on our church. We have more and more leaks after it rains, and the leaks are causing the destruction of pews and carpeting inside the church. I was hoping that we would survive Fall and Winter and take care of our roof in Spring. However, now I am sure we cannot leave our roof as it is. We need to replace all the shingles on our roof, and make some repairs on the flat roof that we have on the chapel and Bethany Lobby. This project will cost us $170,000, which we do not have. So we need to take another loan from the diocese to make the repair possible. It is why I am asking you to financially support this project, which we will call Roof Repair Fund. We will have envelopes for this fund sent with the envelope mailing that is delivered to your home starting in December. But if you can, I encourage you to support this fund as soon as possible by putting your donation in a separate envelope in the collection basket, with the words Roof Repair Fund on it. For those of you who are using Give Central, there is a fundraising event created named Roof Repair Fund, and you can donate for that purpose.
Thank you so much for your generous help.
With Peace and Goodness,
Fr. Peter Sarnicki, OFM Conv.
