If you are interested please contact the rectory 708-484-7951 and set up a date for a Monday evening about 7:00PM.

August Project 2014
Roof & Air Conditioning Project
$25,000 - $30,000
We have already begun work on the installation of the cement which is the first stage of the project. As we discussed in church, our August Project is to relocate the air conditioning units to the ground and repair the damage on the roof from the decaying supports that supported the units for over 40 years. This is the most cost effective solution to the roof issues. The cost of this project is in the $25,000 to $30,000 range.
Envelopes have been placed in the pews and the bulletin and will be available throughout the month of August until enough money has been raised to complete the work. In appreciation to the parishioners who donate, a plaque will be placed in the vestibule to honor those that give or give in memorial of a oved one. We will have 3 levels:
Silver gifts of at least $200 to $499
Gold for gifts of $500 to $1,499
Platinum for gifts of $1,500 or more
Please be sure to include your name and address so we can properly thank you.
Thank you for your continued generosity
