St. Mary's Fundraising

"They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future." 
       -  Timothy 6:17-19

Our church building is now over 40 years old and is in dire need of a new roof to prevent further damage to the church interior including the painted icons on the ceilings and walls. This is an expensive proposition, with costs estimated at $120,000 to cover the necessary repairs to the roof and to fix water damage to the interior of the church. 

We would sincerely appreciate if each parishioner could make a very generous, Special Donation to the Roof project to help cover the costs. We are planning to replace the roof in the spring but we need to raise 50% of the necessary funds before the work can begin. Donations can placed in the collection basket in an envelope marked "Roof Fund" or if more convenient  mailed to the church at this addressYour financial support is urgently needed! A tax receipt will of course be issued.

Fundraising efforts are also being planned to supplement special donations and our first fundraising event, a Gala Banquet and Silent Auction, was a tremendous success. This event was made possible thanks to the generous support of those who attended, the donations of event sponsors, the donations of many valuable auction items from local businesses and individuals as well as the planners, organizers and volunteers who made it happen. Look for more of these events as the fundraising effort continues. It's off to a great start!
