This project started with town hall discussions to discover the priorities of the community at the time of our 50th Anniversary. That was followed up by a year of study and formation of the Building Committee.
The Building Committee is made up of various parishioners who have been active in the parish for many years and have helped to make the decision to move ahead with our plans to clean the Church. To date, we have the generous pledges for 378 bricks. When these bricks are paid in full, the total amount collected will be $189,000.00 dollars.
Currently, we have 144 of those bricks pledges paid in full for a total of $72,000.00 dollars. The other hundred pledges equals $37,120 in payments. For the total project, we have collected $109,120.00 dollars. This money, according to Archdiocesan policy, is being held in a separate back account from the general funds of the parish.
Significant progress has been made in our church with the renovations that have been completes (phase one and tw9:. There is much more to be done.
Phase One: $88,883 dollars
Phase Two: $300,000 dollars
Phase Two is the cleaning of the pews, new flooring throughout the church, and painting. This phase will cost close to $300,000 dollars. Just to buy the tile for the flooring we will need to collect Eighty Thousand Dollars. This next phase is the most important phase of the project, it to clean and maintain our worship space for many years to come. Your support is essential.
Phase Three is to rehab the Bathrooms of the Church. While this is not essential, it is equally important for the well-being of the community. This is just of the occasional posting that I will release to let you know how the project is proceeding. Again, thank you all for your most generous support.
59 years ago a small group of families gathered and made plans to construct our church and school. 59 years later, another, much larger group of families gathers in the fruit of their labors, our beautiful Parish Plant. We have so much to be thankful for at Maria Regina. One of the ways that we give thanks is by preparing something now so as to give to the future generations.
We, the People of God, under the patronage of Maria Regina, Queen of Heaven and Earth, are called to be disciples of Jesus Christ in this time and in this place. As members of the Body of Christ we gather to worship at the Altar of the Lord in Word and Eucharist, in which we are nourished. From here we go forth as disciples in the power of the Holy Spirit to make the Good News of Jesus Christ alive in our world.
