Kitchen/Hall Renovation Update

Thanks to the hard-working fundraisers and your generous donations towards our Kitchen/Hall Renovation Project, we have now raised $220,105!!! Holy Cross Parish has hired the services of an architect firm and they have begun the work to get this project off the ground. The total estimated cost to replace/remodel the kitchen, hall, washrooms, storage areas and back entrance is $550,000. These past two weeks Holy Cross Parish has applied for grants totaling $250,000. We are also in the process of applying for grants from 3 other organizations. We realize this has been a long and sometimes frustrating process; however, we are grateful to be seeing some light at the end of the tunnel! We sincerely hope to begin this project by June 2020. Thank you for your continued patience!
