INVESTING IN OUR FUTURE...PRESERVING OUR PAST
Thank you for your generous support of our Investing in Our Future... Preserving Our Past Program! Several weeks ago, we began this important parish-wide program and we are starting to see signs that our offertory collections are growing through the generosity of YOU, our faithful parish community. We will be publishing in the bulletin a report with important highlights from our program. Thank you so very much to all who participated. Your generosity shows your willingness as faithful stewards to be a part of the ongoing missions of St. Mary Church.
BABY, IT'S COLD OUTSIDE
Well, not quite yet but St. Mary Parish is ready. The Church and the School (the
Parish) will benefit from the replacement of our boiler which finally gave up to the
point where it could not be repaired. The entire cost of the new boiler project is
$424,000. Individual donors provided $262,000 toward the cost leaving $162,000 for
the Parish to cover through general reserves for the blessing of heat. Please
prayerfully consider if you are able to assist the Parish with the outstanding balance.
Over the next several weeks when winter is bearing down us, parishioners can rest easy knowing that they helped contribute to the cost of keeping us warm at mass, keeping the students comfortable at school and preventing our pipes from bursting.
You may go online to donate, drop off a check to the Parish Office or contact Cathy Brackenridge or Kris Jesse at 740-363-4641. For more information or to view the new boiler please call or email Kris Jesse.
