Fr. Steve’s column 11-13-22

Just a reminder that this Wednesday (November 16th) is our Sneak Peak at the new vestibule expansion!    Our parish-wide effort to raise $500,000 to complete this project (for which we’ve already raised over $1.8 million) will take place in April 2023, but we’re offering a chance for all of our parishioners to take a look at the plans (especially since many folks prefer to do their charitable giving at the end of the year.)


We invite all of our parishioners to consider giving at the following levels, whether you prefer to make your contribution now or wait until April:

$5000 (includes a large engraved brick in an exterior space in the new addition)

$1000 (includes a small engraved brick)

Any other amount will be gratefully acknowledged in the program when the new building is dedicated.

I gave a more detailed description of the features and benefits of the new addition in my column a couple of weeks ago, but you have to see the renderings to fully appreciate just how dramatically this will beautify our church and expand our gathering space, so I hope you can make it this Wednesday.

6:45pm:  refreshments will be served in the vestibule

7:00pm:  the program will begin in the church, including a video showing all sorts of architectural renderings and an opportunity for Q&A

The program will be done at 7:30pm.

For folks who can’t make it on Wednesday but who wish to make their contribution before the year-end instead of waiting until April, feel free to reach out to me and I can talk to you individually.  Otherwise, you’ll be hearing more about this project (and seeing more beautiful images) as we approach the fundraising stage in April.
