Happy New Year!
This past year has been remarkable. We have reevaluated our building projects, revised our plans, designed an office building and built the building. We have reimagined the rectory, remodeled the upstairs, the old kitchen and a guest room on the main floor. Two priests have moved in, the employees have moved out and the last phase of the rectory renovation has begun. Indeed, 2016 was truly remarkable. Thank you for making this great project possible!
We are just over three years into our five-year campaign, with only the painting, flooring and lighting to complete on the main floor of the rectory, as well as the parking lot to the south of the church and a few other miscellaneous things. We are hoping to complete the rectory by March, at which time we’ll have an open house for both the new office and the renovated rectory…as long as we can get Fr. Nick to clean his room! J Keep your eyes out for an invitation in the bulletin.
We have been advised that the last two years of a five-year campaign are the most difficult—the building projects come to completion, but the bills must still be paid. This is close to where we find ourselves: the building projects will soon be through, but the loan from the Archdiocese is still due.
So, this is why we’ll be sending out quarterly statements through the end of our campaign—not to hound, but just as a courtesy, so that we’ve got that reminder to help us fulfill what we’ve pledged to one another to do. And as we’ve said before, if something significant has happened in your life, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We do know that life happens, and adaptations must be made.
In closing, I’d like to thank you and all those who have been involved in our projects. We are not only finishing ahead of schedule, but it looks like we’ll also be completing our projects at a little under the original budget. What a great way to begin the New Year!
