Several projects are happening to keep our beautiful Church protected and in good condition.
Our church is now 130 years old. This historic site was built after a devastating fire that ruined the previous church building. In order to continue our presence in the community our present church edifice was built. However, it was discovered during one of our meetings of the Finance/Restoration Committee that nothing was ever done over the years to protect us from another devastating fire. The Finance/Restoration Committee decided we could no longer wait to address this pressing concern. A complete fire protection system was installed throughout the church during the month of May and it was decided that we would dedicate the Annual Fund Drive this year to that project.
Other smaller projects will also be supported by this year’s Annual Fund Drive. We have repainted the Main Street Wall of the church and refinished the front doors of the church on Main Street and have made repairs to the rectory exterior. Two of the windows on the Edward Street side of the church which are now about 130 years old were taken out, repaired and have been replaced. The parking lot has been re-sealed and stripped.
We are grateful to all who have donated to the Annual Fund Drive this year. If you have not yet had the opportunity, it is not too late to contribute to the Annual Fund Drive. We still need help meeting the costs of these upgrades. Your kind support is greatly appreciated as always and we thank you for your generosity.
