Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,April 12, 2013
Dear Beloved Parishioners:
Praised be the name of Jesus! He is risen! He is risen indeed, alleluia!
In August of 2011, we established a Building Improvement Fund. The purpose of establishing this fund was to save money over time through a special once-a-month second collection, for high cost improvements to our physical plant.
The initial project which the Finance Committee unanimously agreed was the most pressing was the resurfacing/improvement of our parish parking areas. Thanks be to God, the funds needed for this project have been collected. The current balance in the Building Improvement Fund Account is $97,615.82. The contracted cost to complete the resurfacing/improvement of the parish parking areas is $95,301.31.
We will continue to have the special collection for the Building Improvement Fund on the second Sunday of the month in order to save the funds necessary to seal coat and restripe the parking areas one year following the completion of the resurfacing/improvement, as recommended by the project contractor, in order extend the lifetime of the new parking lot surface. Once the estimated cost of $11,128.03 to seal coat and restripe the parking areas in May, 2014 have been saved, we will begin saving funds for the resealing of the church and school campus roofs.
Please see the parking lot project schedule below. As indicated, some sections of the parking lot areas will be closed the weekend of May 4-5. Thanks in advance for your understanding the temporary inconvenience caused by this much-needed project.
Wishing you and your families every grace and blessing throughout the remainder of this Easter season!
