The wonderful news has probably traveled to most of you, that the Lord has given our parish a beautiful temple, the historic St. Joseph's cemetery church. The church has been boarded up for 30 years. The church and land, about 2 acres, has been given to us by the Christian Brothers, as an outright gift. It will be our task to restore and renovate the building, which will need to be done before we can occupy it. With the Lord's help we will need to raise $1,000,000.00 to cover the costs of the restoration/renovation. Additional funds will be needed for the beautification of the church, and to build a parish hall (we estimate another $1,000,000.00.) We have begun fund-raising efforts, and welcome any ideas or suggestions for ways to raise the funds. To all of our brothers and sisters in Christ, please keep us in your prayers as we begin this process.
