Last fall it was determined our church needed a new lower roof, new upper roof, a new furnace and air conditioning unit for the Parish Center and tuck pointing for the steeple. Estimated costs are approximately $95,000.
The lower roof and furnace and AC repairs have been completed with the rest of the work beginning soon.
We need your help to help finance this work.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners
"Do not abandon yourselves to despair.
We are the Easter people and Hallelujah is our song."
Saint John Paul II
“To those who have been away...come back…
Christ Himself is waiting for you.
He will heal you; and you will be at peace with God.”
