Re: Capital Campaign Extension
First I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to our Capital Campaign. You helped the parish reach our initial goal and then we were blessed to have exceeded it!!! Your contributions have enabled us to renovate the church, add a handicap bathroom and ramp, install new heating and air conditioning units in the Church and Auditorium and we have recently completed renovations to the auditorium and school bathrooms.
However, there is still some work to be done. The auditorium needs to have the walls, floor, ceiling, lighting and vestibule redone. In addition, the church needs to have the front steps redone and we would like to add a roof overhang to protect the front doors from the weather. We need to address these things before they become safety issues and or require more extensive repairs.
The anticipated cost will be approximately $150,000. We would appreciate each family donating $300. We have nearly 3500 families in the parish and our initial campaign was supported by 575 families. This will give everyone an opportunity for families to become a part of our parish by registering and showing their support and how much they care for our parish. Your gift to our parish will enable us to complete the renovation projects we started.
I am once again asking you to help us out in any way you can. The campaign will be extended for 1 year and contributions can be made in one payment or several payments. A form and payment envelope is enclosed for your convenience. Forms are also available in the rectory office. Checks should be made payable to “OLA Capital Campaign”.
You have been extremely generous to the Parish and I want to thank you once again. God Bless the Families of Our Lady of the Assumption.
Yours in Christ,
Fr. Dariusz Koszyk
