Retire the debt on the new Church Flooring

posted Jul 17, 2012, 8:39 AM by IHM Parish
We will take up a second collection
for three weekends straight so as to completely pay off the
debt on the new floor in our church. As I have mentioned
previously, we owe now around $10,000 to finish the
$30,000 project. We have received large and small
contributions from individuals as well as the large donation of
a family. They have totaled nearly $20,000. So that we can
leave our savings intact at the Diocesan Deposit and Loan
Fund for other needs in the future, we hope and pray that
these collections will net us the remainder needed to
complete the project and have paid for it completely. I am
SO grateful to the many gifts, large and small, that has come
from parishioners. It is such a blessing to be where people
are proud of their beautiful church, and want to see it kept
up. I have guests, other priests, and our own parishioners
comment on the new flooring.
