This year the Annual Preservation Fund Drive will go toward the preservation of our beautiful stained glass windows.
You may have noticed last weekend that there were two high lifts parked in our parking lot. Since last weekend two more have arrived and another is on its way or may be here already.
Ten years ago the Annual Fund Drive was dedicated to preserving the exterior window frames of all the stained glass windows. At that time all of the window frames were repainted and any wood that was in need of repair was fixed. Our contractor informed us that in order to continue to maintain the integrity of the windows that we would need to periodically paint and replace any wood that was in disrepair. He suggested we attend to the preservation of the windows at least every ten years.
This year the Annual Preservation Fund Drive will go toward the preservation of our beautiful stained glass windows. The work began this week. The project will address any issues that are found. The windows will be repainted as well as the gutters and downspouts. Preventive maintenance goes a long way in preserving the beauty of the church and lowering costs that could be astronomical if this work was left unattended.
McHugh Painting and Restoration will be moving around the church until they have completed the project. They will also put us on a time line for the next time the windows will need attending. Your generosity to the upcoming Preservation Fund Drive will go a long way to help complete this very costly preservation project.
