As most of you know, we have been conducting a Capital Campaign for the last two years. The time is now coming when the two year commitment will be completed. I want to thank all who have generously given to the Campaign. As a result of your generosity, we now have a new furnace in the Church, the Faith Formation Center( the former School) has a new roof and we are now in the process of tearing down the old Convent/ Youth Center to make way for additional handicapped parking. We still must deal with resurfacing the main parking lot.
Altogether we have raised about $426,000 through the campaign. This is about $100,000 short of our 500,000 dollar goal. We will need that additional money in order to properly fix the parking lot. The roof for the Faith Formation Center cost us about $240,000. This was far in excess of our original estimate of $75,000. The reason for this increase was the condition of the old roof. Asbestos removal and extensive (unseen and unknown to us) damage to the roof structure caused the cost to triple. Therefore we need all who have not given to the campaign to make a gift that will enable us to do the work in the parking lot, and finish the tasks we set out to accomplish.
Again, I wish to express my gratitude to all who have pledged and or given to the Capital Campaign. If those who have not yet given would find a way to make a contribution, we would be able to make sure that our Church property is safe for all who come to St. Paul’s.
May God bless you and all those whom you love,
Fr. Peter Pagones, Pastor
