Dear Parishioners, friends, families, and all members of our community,
Four years ago, in August 2018, I was blessed to be appointed Pastor of Holy Rosary Church.
I have witnessed firsthand the great works of our Parish faith community and your increased love for Jesus, Mary, and the Eucharist.
Now, our spiritual home, Holy Rosary Church, is in need of repairs and improvements, projects small and large.
Your Parish Finance Committee has recommended we start immediately to raise funds for a new Church roof. The old one is over twenty years old, leaky, and in disrepair. Several contractors have told us repairs are not feasible.
In total, the cost of a new Church roof and maintenance and repair to the HVAC, among other needs, is projected to cost over $300,000. It is estimated the roof on the Church needs to be replaced within 6 to 8 months to avoid further deterioration and repair expense.
As we strive to continue our Faith mission, I ask that you pray about making a weekly or monthly contribution specifically to our Cornerstone Capital Campaign. Every donation counts and 100% of all funds raised through this campaign will stay in the parish specifically for maintenance and renovations.
Your Parish Finance Committee will also work with me to identify especially blessed families of the Parish to consider a one-time major gift to the Building Improvement Fund. If you will prayerfully consider such a blessing to the Church, or perhaps wish to work on a committee to contact other Parishioners, please contact me, personally.
Together we can continue the dynamic Parish community spirit present, preserving our physical facilities for many years to come.
God Bless you, your families, our friends, and our community.
The Reverend Daniel Steiner, Pastor
The Church of the Holy Rosary
