By Father Perry D. Leiker

On the second Sunday of last month (Sept. 11), our second collection for the Building Fund brought in $1,785. Thanks to the generosity of our parishioners.

As promised, the following is a brief report of some of the recent improvements:

Painting: rectory offices, exterior walls of the Parish Hall, school railings, light fixtures.

Lighting: additional lights for safety and security installed.

Sacred Heart/front of parish hall: grass, flowers, painting, lighting added.

Parish Center: All hardwood floors stripped and varnished, all rooms painted on both floors, new door knobs and locks throughout the center with push-bar door for childrens' safety.

Total expenses to date have been $8,951.

Thanks to the ministry groups for labor, donations, food to feed our workers and donations for professional painters for part of the job. Thanks to our own maintenance staff for their assistance!

Next week’s (Oct. 9) Building Fund collection will help to defray these costs and help toward future projects.
