From January 2016 until June 2016 St. Louis was part of the Upon This Rock initiative. As a part of this program, parishes were asked to identify a need that they would like to address in order that each parish may continue their good works. Because of your generosity to the Upon This Rock Campaign, we have been able to complete several major projects. We have received our ninth disbursement from the Campaign. Over the years these funds helped us to complete some very major projects. This year we were able to do some painting in the church, install a chair lift to go up to the choir loft and resealing and striping the parking lot.
St. Louis continues to receive two yearly disbursements from the Upon This Rock Campaign. At the end of January the parish received $32,343.14. This added to our previous disbursements totals $339,645.79. Thank you for remaining faithful to your pledge commitment to Upon This Rock.
The Finance/Restoration Committee is now meeting to identify projects that we hope to complete this year. Some items already mentioned are repairing the porch railing on the rectory, painting the stairwells going up to the choir loft, and making repairs to the parking lot which seemed to have suffered from the cold this year.
As with any old house there will always be something that needs to be done. Once again thank you your support of the projects that St. Louis is able to complete each year allowing us to maintain our Gothic Grandeur. As always, may St. Louis bless you in return for your generous support of our Annual Preservation Fund and Upon This Rock.
