Kitchen/Hall Renovation Update

After numerous delays due to financing, COVID and hazardous material remediation, we finally have movement on our kitchen renovations.

We have secured roughly 90% of the funds for the renovations and will be working over the next couple months on securing the remainder once the tender packages come in with final numbers.

The tender for securing the contractor is going out the beginning of February and the plan is to have construction begin April 6th – after the Easter weekend.

It will be a phased approach beginning with the kitchen.  The remainder of the basement will be given a facelift until such time as funding can be secured to complete the bathrooms and the hall.

We thank you all for your generous support for this project and for your continued patience.

Warm Hug Winter Collection in Lieu of Advent Tree

“Warm Hug Winter Collection in Lieu of Advent Tree”

Women and children in shelters are still in desperate need of mittens, scarves, hats and socks, in spite of COVID-19.

Until the end of January, the CWL will gladly be accepting donations through the parish office (providing any restrictions), by depositing them in the designated bin located between the office doors.

Please accumulate your collection so that you can only make one deposit at the parish office.

Thank you for your support.

Be well and be safe.
